ALBANY — The College of Saint Rose will cut 16 bachelor’s degree programs, six master’s degree programs and three certificate programs, and will eliminate 33 tenured and tenure-track faculty effective December 2021, according to the college. Another eight full-time visiting faculty with annual contracts will not be renewed at that time.
The almost $6 million in cuts mean the end of four bachelor’s degrees in the Art program, three in the Music program, two Math degrees, five Science and Technology degrees and two business degrees. In the college’s master’s programs, four Education degree offerings will be eliminated, two Business and Technology degrees and certificate programs in financial planning, literacy and quality control in higher education.
The college, which offers 109 undergraduate and graduate degree programs and certificates, is shutting a number of programs with declining or historically low enrollment, according to its website.
Of the 3,774 students at the college, program cuts will effect 10 percent of undergraduate students and 4 percent of graduate students.
