Rider University students rally to bring back 13 cut majors - Ryan Lasker, USA Today

Nearly 300 students will need to change their career paths at Rider University after officials moved to eliminate 13 majors and one minor. Freshmen and sophomores who declared majors in areas like French and philosophy will no longer be allowed to earn those degrees at Rider. Students first heard about the change in an email last week from university president Gregory Dell’Omo. As the New Jersey school tries to decrease its $7.6 million deficit by cutting 13 majors and programs, students are tasked with deciding whether to pursue a new major or transfer to another school. In addition to the 14 programming cuts university-wide, three majors — business economics, entrepreneurial studies and sociology — will only be offered as minors
