If you can't get 35 students in a major in 4 years, what are you doing having a stand alone major in the first place? It's like having 12 High schools in Scioto County, or 5 in Athens County, it's a lot of redundancy in services, and I am sure they can spend money more wisely. Just my $.02

I wonder if instead of cutting those majors, I wonder if thought was given to cutting athletics programs with only a small number of participants.

Yeah, I'd cut a sport like synchronized skating, which has 42 student athletes and no scholarships. That sport is bringing in more tution monies than those majors that are seeing 35 kids in 4 years!

What is Miami trying to do having area studies centers and majors? I'm all for a strong commitment to the basic liberal arts departments at all levels of higher education, but when you're talking about things like Russian & East European Studies, you only really have a chance to be successful and attract corporate and government recruiters if you have AAU type resources to put behind them. Here's a list of the designated "National Resource Centers" and there aren't a lot of schools like Miami on it. Did Miami just think putting them out there and saying "public ivy" a thousand times would bring the World Bank or CIA to campus?
