Regents cut 215 inactive academic programs
The University System of Georgia's Board of Regents has terminated 215 programs at 18 schools.
The AJC reports each of the programs have already been deactivated for more than two years because of lagging enrollment and officials say that any impacted students have received advice on how to pursue other degrees.
Stuart Rayfield, who’s vice president for leadership and institutional development says some of the programs have been consolidated and streamlined into a smaller number of programs. Others are just at the point of retirement.
The list of terminated programs includes 43 at the University of Georgia, 32 at Georgia Southern University, 28 at Georgia State University and 26 at Augusta University.
The discontinued programs include a mix of associate, bachelor, master, specialist and doctorate degrees.
