Humanities courses cut at Iranian university

Help

Journalism and communication studies are among 13 undergraduate degrees which have been removed from the prospectus of one of Iran's universities this year.

This year Allameh Tabatabayee university offers 6 undergraduate degrees in the field of humanities studies as opposed to 19 last year.

Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has said that the field of humanities studies in Iran should be adapted to the needs of an Islamic society.
