The University of Vermont has announced a plan to phase out some low-enrollment programs as it addresses a budget deficit of $8.6 million.

The school says a dozen of the College of Arts and Sciences' 56 majors were identified to be discontinued as well as 11 of its 63 minors and four of its 10 master’s degree programs.

UVM says they either have had low enrollments or an average of fewer than five graduates a year over the past three years.

Students in those programs will be able to complete their degrees.
