August 3, 2015

Regent University is adding 40 academic programs in the coming year, but is cutting low-enrollment programs, especially in languages, The Virginian-Pilot reported. University officials said the shifts responded to the interests of students and prospective students. Among the new programs are cybersecurity, computer science and healthcare management. The university is calling the changes a "major growth initiative," and is hiring new instructors and others for the efforts.
