IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The University of Iowa has announced the first majors eligible for a new three-year bachelor’s degree program aimed at faster graduation and cutting costs.

UI President Sally Mason on Thursday said students interested in studying communication, English, history, international studies, marketing and theatre arts can enroll in the program beginning this fall. She says other majors might be added in the future.

According to a news release, three-year degrees require the same number of credits as those completed in four years, meaning students must take more classes each semester to remain on track. Interested students will be eligible for summer session scholarships and alternatives when mandatory courses are unavailable.

Mason tells the Iowa City Press-Citizen (https://icp-c.com/17xrEM8 ) the program is ideal for “highly motivated students” who are sure of their major.
