Approval of both a Chinese and Arabic major and minor were just two of the many items approved at Friday's Board of Regents meeting.
The Board of Regents held their final quarterly meeting Friday morning in the Cornelius A. Martin Regents Room in Mass Media and Technology Hall. All action items were approved.
The two new majors are set to be implemented next semester.
Patricia Minter, faculty regent, said the majors will help with WKU's academic credentials.
"You can't be serious if you don't teach Arabic and Chinese as a major," Minter said.
The regents also approved the split of the department of psychology, creating the new department of psychological studies.
