SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The state Board of Regents voted unanimously to approve the termination the University of Iowa’s German Ph.D. program at its meeting in Ames on Wednesday. It marks the 13th graduate program for which the regents have approved termination in the past two years.

The board also voted to lift to the suspension on the German M.A. The two programs have been under suspended enrollment since September 2009.

UI officials sought the termination due to a lack of interest in the program, said John Keller, Dean of the Graduate College. The doctoral program has not graduated any students since May 2003.

Prospective students will be able to apply to the master’s program for the fall 2011 semester.
