All Foreign Language Bachelor’s Degree Programs at Historically Black State Universities in Louisiana to Be Eliminated

Budget cuts proposed by the Louisiana Board of Regents will result in the elimination of more than 100 degree programs at state universities in Louisiana. Southern University, the historically black educational institution in Baton Rouge, will drop 13 degree programs, the most of any university in the state.

As a result of the restructuring, there will be no foreign language bachelor’s degree programs at any historically black state university in Louisiana.
