LSU Chancellor Recommends Eliminating MLS Degree

Louisiana State University Chancellor Michael Martin has recommended that LSU's MLS program be eliminated.

Here's an excerpt from the press release:

In response to the current fiscal crisis facing higher education in Louisiana, LSU Chancellor Michael Martin has recommended the elimination or reduction of 20 academic programs, centers, institutes and facilities at LSU in the first phase of changes to reduce costs and focus the mission of the university. . . .

Academic programs recommended for closure include the Master of Library and Information Sciences, the Bachelor of Arts in German and Latin and the reduction of language options for a savings of approximately $1.5 million at full implementation. Additional savings of $500,000 would be achieved through administrative adjustments in Continuing Education.
