Homeopathy degree suspended after criticism

The University of Central Lancashire has been offering undergrads a degree in homeopathic medicine. Now, thanks to the efforts of proponents of science based medicine the university has suspended the degree. While they'll process the poor saps who have already enrolled, they will not be accepting applicants for the 2009 school year.

Of course they haven't REALLY killed off the degree in magic, but have instead made it clear they're waiting to see how the climate changes with time. If interest in using distilled water that's been shaken properly as medicine increases then they'll not doubt resume accepting applications for the degree.

Personally, I think anyone with a degree from the University of Central Lancashire should be nervous. The adminsitration seems determined to turn the place into a diploma mill for random nonsense. No one wants to find their school reduced to a resume stain.
