Does a disestablishment of a university major affect that major’s alumni/graduates?

2.41K views

My alma mater recently has begun the process to disestablish the major that I graduated in. If the major will be closed out in the near future, does that affect the status of any past graduates of that said major? It feels….weird that my major will be dissolved, but many thousands of fellow alumni have degrees in it.

I’ll let you on on a dirty little secret:

Beyond your first job out of school, nobody cares about your degree, where it came from, or whether it’s still offered. An employer might contact the school to verify your enrollment, but that’s it.

That your degree is no longer being offered has absolutely no impact on alumni, so long as the reason it’s no longer being offered isn’t due to some sort of malfeasance.
