FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne has announced it is eliminating several degree programs and departments as part of a major restructuring.

The Journal Gazette reports the school's College of Arts and Sciences is most affected, with geology, philosophy and women's studies being eliminated Jan. 1. Degree programs in French and German are among those to be suspended. Other departments will be merged.

The changes follow a proposal released in January from a state-mandated study that would split IPFW into two schools based on Indiana and Purdue university strengths. Purdue currently provides administrative oversight of IPFW.

The trustees of Purdue and IU voted in June to extend their IPFW management agreement for five years and put off any decision to realign the school until December.
