MHC suspends intake to 4 programs

April 17, 2015

Medicine Hat College is suspending intake to 4 programs, reports CBC, including the Bachelor of Applied Science (ecotourism and outdoor leadership), the Global Tourism and Marketing diploma, the Education Assistant certificate, and the Massage Therapy diploma. Officials at MHC said the cuts are necessary due to lower enrolment numbers and cuts to provincial funding. Students currently enrolled in the programs will be able to complete their studies, but students that have been accepted for the fall semester are being contacted to discuss alternative programs and/or institutions. VP Academic Michael Gillespie said that some instructor positions will also be affected. MHC plans to release their budget in June. CBC | Chat TV
