Nevada's Reno Campus May Cut Language and Agriculture Programs

School expects $62 million budget shortfall over next two years.


At the University of Nevada-Reno, officials might cut several small academic majors because of a severe budget shortfall, the Nevada Sagebrush reports. Programs that are on the brink include French, German, and two agriculture programs (The provost would not specify which two.)

The state of Nevada has been hit hard by the flailing economy, with gambling and tourism revenues down, and the school could see $62 million in cuts over the next two years. No official decisions have been made, and the provost says he hopes individual department heads and deans would make the decisions themselves.
