The Uni­ver­sity of Mon­tana has be­come the lat­est US uni­ver­sity to an­nounce plans to dis­con­tinue sev­eral hu­man­i­ties ma­jors, in a move in which 50 full-time aca­demic po­si­tions may also be axed. The pro­pos­als from the Mis­soula-based in­sti­tu­tion seek to plug the uni­ver­sity’s $10 mil­lion (£7.4 mil­lion) deficit over the next three years, fol­low­ing years of de­clin­ing en­rol­ment and state bud­get cuts. The draft strat­egy was an­nounced by the uni­ver­sity’s re­cently ap­pointed pres­i­dent, Seth Bod­nar, who took over the helm of the in­sti­tu­tion in Jan­uary, after spend­ing six and a half years in man­age­rial and ex­ec­u­tive po­si­tions at Gen­eral Elec­tric.
