Lebanon Valley College proposes cutting jobs, low-enrollment majors

LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) - - Some big changes are coming to Lebanon Valley College. The school will be restructuring to reduce costs. 

It's still in the preliminary stages, but officials want to shave about $1.5 million from the budget.

The college says tenured faculty will not be affected, but officials say they cannot rule out the impact on non-tenured faculty. 

In addition to jobs, some low-enrollment majors are also on the chopping block.

"French, German, Religion, Philosophy, Interaction and Experience, as well as some restructuring to our art concentrations, and potentially International Business merging with Global Studies," said Molly O'Brien-Foelsch, the chief communications director for the college. 

Officials add there will likely be a small increase in the out-of-pocket costs students pay to attend the school.
