NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. (WFFT) - Manchester University is dropping two programs in an effort to save money.

University officials told FOX 55 French and Physical Education will no longer be offered as majors.

There are currently 14 students enrolled in both programs combined.

Students currently enrolled in those programs won't see any changes and will be able to graduate with those degrees.

French classes and study abroad opportunities will still be available for students.

Students wanting to teach Physical Education will be in the Exercise Science with education certification.

New programs will be offered, including Digital Media and Nursing.

Four teaching positions will also be cut when their contracts expire by Spring 2021.

The golf team is also suspended, which only has four golfers.

The team will exist, but won't participate in NCAA events.
