Like everyone, I’m just utterly confused by the outrageous closure of an entire programme. We are used, in the Liberal Arts, to such double-handedness. Essentially, we’re told we’re out for value, but then, of course, you find out that other programmes (British spelling purposeful) end up being more costly, such as in Business, etc. And that means that what they really value is business and other professionalized programmes for their own sake. Such closures are a threat to us all, not just those, like me, who have gotten so much of that particular programme and the publications of its faculty.
