Budget Crunch Forces UW Program Cuts

The University of Wyoming trustees decided Wednesday to eliminate 11 academic programs to save money amid a state budget crunch. Students in those programs will be allowed to complete their degrees.

      Programs to be cut include bachelor’s degrees in business administration; journalism; and secondary French, German and Spanish education. 

       Minors in business and master’s programs in psychology and teaching chemistry and history will also be cut. 

      A master’s program in creative writing and bachelor’s and master’s programs in American studies survived the chopping block, but UW President Ed Seidel warns more cuts are coming
