La Trobe wants to cut courses

The university proposes ending some degrees and changing delivery modes in HASS and education

A proposal sent to staff yesterday includes, suspending a creative arts degree, a “cessation” of Hindi, Indonesian and Greek studies at the metro Melbourne Bundoora campus, “reconfiguring” the philosophy curriculum and moving the BA at regional campuses fully on-line.

Education courses to close are the ed tech bachelors and masters in linguistics and TESOL.

Five positions would go in education under the plan, with people being offered VRs in the first instance. The proposals now go to staff consultation.
