Those who have already received their acceptance letters may be noticing that schools are choosing to increase their degree offerings in an effort to meet the needs of a larger student base.
Marshall University has been working to increase the variety of majors it offers in an effort to generate student interest. According to the Parthenon, the college's student newspaper, the university is currently underway with its first year of the sports journalism major.
"There is a lot of interest in sports in the Tri-State area and really the entire state of West Virginia," Bruno Morris, a print journalism professor, told the publication. "Every young person likes sports, especially young men who tune into ‘SportsCenter.' It was a major that was overdue."
Additionally, the Associated Press reports that this coming fall, the school will launch a bachelor's degree of science in public health. This will be the first of its kind to be offered in the state.
