Baker University says it will eliminate five majors of study beginning in the fall semester.

The university announced Wednesday that it will drop majors in molecular bioscience, wildlife biology, computer information systems, physical education and political science.

However, many of the courses in those majors will still be taught.

Baker spokesman Steve Rottinghaus says the cuts will save the university about $400,000. The savings will come from the retirement of four professors and the relocation of seven others into different positions.

The school says the cuts will affect about 30 nonfreshman students.
