The University of District of Columbia is dropping seventeen subjects with low enrollments.
“The trustees agreed to eliminate undergraduate majors in 17 subjects, including sociology, which has 31 students; economics, which now has 23 students; history, with 20 students; and physics, with four students, Anderson found from UDC data.”
The athletic program loses $3,000,000 per year. Obviously, sports are much more important to UDC than academics. Why study economics and physics when we can have basketball?
