University of Central Missouri Loses Philosophy Program

Students at the University of Central Missouri will no longer be able to major in philosophy, according to the school’s news site, Muleskinner.

It’s reported that the philosophy program was eliminated because it “didn’t make its projected student goal of 10 graduating students over a year’s time.” The move is a response to unspecified “budget cuts”. Some philosophy classes will remain on the books as part of the school’s general education curriculum.

It was not reported what effect, if any, this would have on the employment of those currently teaching philosophy at the school.
