NEWARK, Del. (AP) - The University of Delaware is saying goodbye to one of its less popular majors in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

WBEL-AM reports that the school is eliminating it agricultural education major.

College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Dean Mark Rieger says the major enrolls 11 students or about 1.5 percent of the student body. All students currently enrolled in the major will be able to get their degrees.

Rieger says the decision is strategic, not financial. The college wants to maintain the quality of the 17 other majors.
