Edinboro University will eliminate more than 20 academic programs
Edinboro University of Pennsylvania will cut 21 academic programs over the next few years.
Some of the programs have no students enrolled and will end immediately.
Other programs on the moratorium list have as many as 30 students enrolled and will end after those students complete the program, university officials said.
“Moratorium basically means no new students will be admitted into these programs, but students currently in the programs, if they wish to, will be able to complete them,” said university Provost Michael Hannan.
Some of the programs that will be eliminated are degree programs. Others are certificate programs or concentrations within degree programs.
Eliminated will be:
• Graduate certificate in conflict management, teaching certification-music, teacher leadership-social studies and teacher leadership-online instruction — all with no students enrolled.
• Secondary education-physics, teaching certification-physics, teaching certification-special education 7-12, history-comprehensive history, physics, data analytics, geographic information science, health and wellness studies, cooperative engineering physics, special education 7-12, autism spectrum disorders endorsement, anthropology, anthropology-forensic anthropology, special education-autism, and web/mobile application development — each with fewer than a dozen students.
