The Community College of Aurora will phase out over 30 degree programs that school leaders say have low demand or less utility in the job market.
The majority of the program cuts at the Aurora college focus on the arts, business, and computer and digital technology, according to Bobby Pace, vice president of academic success.
But classes that fall under those degree and certificate programs won’t disappear. Instead, they will be offered as electives or as requirements for other degrees.
An audit found low enrollment or little demand among local employers for the nearly three dozen degree and certificate programs.
