Kabale University Vice Chancellor, Prof Joy Constance Kwesiga has announced that as part of the ongoing restructuring of the university after its take over by government, a total of three academic courses have been earmarked to be discontinued.
The VC named the courses set to be phased out as Development Studies, (which President Yoweri Museveni has over the years discouraged universities from teaching), Counselling and Guidance; and Secretarial Studies.
Prof Kwesiga said these courses will be phased out or turned into individual course units in other courses.
She said the university is trying to concentrate on science courses, mostly Engineering and Medicine.
Prof Kwesiga was on Thursday hosting members of the Parliamentary Committee on Education and Sports led by Chairperson Connie Nakayenze, at the university campus.
She also revealed that the university will soon start awarding PhDs now that they have been chartered by the National Council of Higher Education.
