HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - William Carey University said religion is still being offered as a major and minor despite the recent exit of a tenured professor.
Rumors were rampant on campus about the state of the department after tenured professor Daniel Browning, who had been at the university for 26 years, taught his last lecture at 1:15 p.m.
Seven On Your Side reached out to William Carey about the rumors, and the school released the following statement:
In regards to Browning's exit, WCU President Tommy King said, "It is William Carey University's policy not to discuss personnel issues."
Students squeezed into Browning's last lecture, and a petition has been started on change.org.
