Humanity Gets the Boot?

Humanity Gets the Boot?

Dear Sir,

Is it economy, is it staff shortages, or is it lack of concern?

I am referring to the quiet removal of the 300 level Social Psychology credits from the course in what appears to be an attempt to 'water down' the range of humanities offerings in the Psychology Dept.

For a university once eminent in this field of psychology this is a sad fate. Even sadder, for the student, is the prospect of planning a well- rounded social science degree that this change precludes. A number of students looking ahead have found this course conspicuous by its absence. It would be interesting to hear of the real reasons for its elimination.
