Missouri Western To Eliminate Majors & Minors

Missouri Western President Matthew Wilson emailed students Saturday the university is considering the elimination of majors and minors the next few years.  The phasing out will come in two years following input from the campus community.  The Board of Governors will vote on the recommendations at the end of the month.  Current students that may be affected will still be able to graduate with their eliminated majors.  Wilson stated, Even though we are gradually phasing out these majors and minors, please remember that you will still have access to these majors and minors for the next two years. Also, even when these majors and minors are no longer available, classes in many of these disciplines will still be offered with respect to other majors, minors, or general education sections.”
