LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas plans to eliminate its Humanities department and two undergraduate degrees because of low enrollment, Provost Barbara Bichelemeyer said. In addition, seven other undergraduate degrees with low enrollment will be merged with other degrees. Six low-enrollment programs will continue, The Lawrence Journal-World reported.

It's about time. How about they eliminate all of the lib professors.

At public universities, remove tenure and cap professor salaries as the same amount as high school teachers.

Ten times easier to teach a college student than a high school student.

Most high school class troublemakers do not go on to college.

Previous graduates of the now defunct degrees are urged to return their degrees for immediate cancellation.

They should drop their poli sci degrees and force these students to get a legitimate career.

But you really have to hope that advanced degrees in studying microaggressions involving bi-racial transgender people who use the pronoun "they" can still be earned at KU.
There are just so many jobs that require this "expertise" just going begging in society!
How about producing some actual competent journalists?
