NATCHITOCHES — Northwestern State University administrators met with a group of students Monday to answer questions about plans to cut some degree programs as a result of budget cuts faced by schools throughout the state.


The bachelor’s degree programs on the chopping block include heritage resources, physics, physics education, chemistry, chemistry education, journalism, sociology and political science, according to a list given to school administrators by NSU Provost Lisa Abney’s office.

The heritage resources master’s degree program is also on the list.

The minors slated for elimination are in geology, physics, chemistry, journalism, sociology, German, historic preservation, French, philosophy, political science, and food and nutrition. Concentrations within bachelor programs will also face cuts, including aviation science, recreation administration, fashion merchandising, housing and interiors, economics and German.
