Faculty members in the smaller majors in Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education are concerned about a review of such programs, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. System officials say that the review is needed because of the budget cuts the system's universities are facing. But faculty members in some of the smaller programs believe that their disciplines are not being recognized both for their work with non-majors and for their centrality. "From my perspective, it doesn't make sense to call it a university unless it has a philosophy major," said Sherrill Begres, chair of philosophy department at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
