Laramie, WY. – University of Wyoming trustees plan to discuss and possibly act on proposals to eliminate two undergraduate and three graduate programs. The discussion over possible elimination of the programs is said to be in response to waning student interest and not cost cutting measures.
Up for potential elimination are the bachelor’s programs in Russian and secondary industrial technical education. The master’s programs in French, German and neuroscience.
“The same material could be taught under different programs.” Provost Kate Miller said.
The trustees plan to take up the proposals Thursday.
Though the university, much like the rest of Wyoming state government, faces layoffs and financial cuts, Miller says no faculty would be laid off immediately.
The 13 students currently enrolled in the programs would be allowed to finish their degrees.
