Baltimore City Community College to eliminate 14 degree programs in effort to streamline courses

 
The Baltimore Sun
 
Over objections from most of the faculty, the Baltimore City Community College Board of Trustees unanimously voted Tuesday night to eliminate 14 degree programs in an effort to streamline courses.

BCCC President Carolane G. Williams said following the meeting that the plan — which will also cut nine faculty positions — was an effort to promote "student success."

By eliminating some programs and consolidating others, she said, the school can use the money to expand high-demand degrees, such as cyber technology and nursing.

She said the consolidation of degrees would also benefit current students in that they will need fewer credit hours to earn a degree or transfer to a four-year university.

For students moving into the work force, the changes will help make their degrees more well-rounded, Williams said. She cite combining the medical, legal and business secretary programs as an example of the program's consolidation. Students before took separate classes to earn different degrees, but now they will take combined courses and get experience in each field. "It helps make those students more employable," she said.
