PSU eliminating Spanish & French bachelor of arts degree programs

Updated:

Pittsburg State University has announced it's doing away with its Spanish and French bachelor of arts degree programs because not enough students are seeking or completing those degrees.

PSU told students already in those programs they will be allowed to finish their degrees, but no additional students will be allowed to declare a major in either program.

The Kansas Board of Regents has established criteria mandating that programs generally have 15 degree-seeking students enrolled and 10 graduates each year, averaged over a five-year period.

But PSU officials say the school's French degree had low numbers of majors and few graduates, while the Spanish degree had enough people majoring but not enough graduating.
