FAIRBANKS — The University of Alaska Fairbanks plans to discontinue three degree programs that haven’t attracted any students for at least the past five years.
The UA Board of Regents approved the elimination of master’s degrees in teaching in mathematics and physics last week during their meeting in Anchorage, along with the Master of Science degree in general science. None of the programs has had any students enrolled since 2008, according to the UAF Faculty Senate, which recommended the deletions.
Discontinuation of the programs won’t affect other programs, personnel, students or the budget, according to the faculty senate summary for the regents. Admissions have been suspended for the programs.
The programs will be formally eliminated starting with the fall 2013 semester.
