9 odd degree program cuts

Maybe not this kind of leisure science

We’ve been suffering our own budget cuts here in Minnesota, and a number of classic degrees are going down for not meeting whatever metrics their institutions have set.

Here’s a list by The Huffington Post that contains nine strange discontinued degrees at other colleges across the country. I noticed that most are from institutions I’ve heard little to nothing about.

A few of the degrees aren’t so strange sounding, but check out the slide show for details.
