Philosophy Among Majors Threatened at LIU Brooklyn

Philosophy, math, economics, visual arts, and sociology-anthropology are among the subjects at Long Island University’s Brooklyn campus that will not be allowed any new majors, at least for the time being, according to Inside Higher Ed.

The “staying” of these majors is the result of a dispute between faculty and administration over revisions to LIU’s core curriculum. While both parties agree that the core curriculum should be revised, some unilateral moves by the administration, including the imposition of a short deadline on formulating and implementing these revisions, have caused the faculty to doubt the university’s commitment to faculty input in the process. LIU Brooklyn was the site of a faculty lockout in September.
