Abstract or Summary
  • Many students at the undergraduate level struggle with finding a niche that satisfies their various interests, specifically those in the arts and sciences. This study examined via interviews with fourteen current or recently graduated Oregon State Students, along with my own experience at the University, how students define art and science, where they place themselves on the continuum between the two disciplines, and how they have pursued their interests in the University and in their lives as a whole. Topics explored in the educational realm included course options and accessibility, appreciation for other disciplines, and the question of breadth versus depth and specialization. Though various opinions were expressed by the students, the main issue that kept rising up throughout the project was a need to revise the baccalaureate core system. At the conclusion, I propose further study on the subject of baccalaureate core specifically and tentatively offer the suggestion that issues that need to be addressed include the timeline of the program over a student's undergraduate career, strength of academic advising, and lack of interesting course options.
