BEAVER FALLS, Pa. — Geneva College is laying off 14 employees and cutting spending by 5 percent.

The school said Wednesday the cutbacks are part of an effort to keep education affordable.

President Ken Smith says the Christian college is making the moves with “deep regret.”

The job cuts include three faculty members who will leave at the end of the 2014-15 school year, and other staff who will leave at varying times.

Geneva says it is phasing out graduate programs in special education and reading, programs in cardiovascular sciences, and undergraduate majors in music performance and biblical languages. Students enrolled in those programs will be able to complete their degrees.
