The trend that started a few months back in the United Kingdom has caught on with UWA. Students are angered with the noose tightening on Humanities, calling it a 'slow death of their field'. They are outraged, stating they can't graduate with the degree they signed up for at the time of admission, and now the fees are non-refundable.

The University of Western Australia (UWA), in its 2020 academic year, plans to pull off majors in anthropology and sociology. Some students seek a refund, saying they wouldn't have chosen UWA had they known their plans ahead for the School of Social Sciences, which removed several research staff to teaching-focused roles.
