BGS students: Unconventional,
looking for broader education

s0- 1

(Continued from Page 1)
Students in BGS, assessing
the value of the program, place
primary stress on the freedom
the program offers to allow
them to evolve their own course
of study.
"I like the BGS because I can
take what I want and what serv-
es me best," explains Boby Lip-
shutz, '73. "Also, t h e r e 's no
counselor's signature required,
so its easy to get into courses."
Lipshutz, who has fulfilled the
LSA language requirement, adds
that she intends to go to grad-
uate school in public health.
"I was alienated in grade
school against foreign language,
so I got into the BGS. Besides,
I only want to be a high school
teacher anyway," another soph-
omore adds.
"I'm in the BGS mainly be-
cause I don't feel I can benefic-
ially pick a major like they want
me to," says another sophomore.
"I'm not going to get a specific
degree because I won't use it
A senior graduating in April
says he plans to use his BGS
to go to graduate, school "even-
tually". He explains he was a
chemistry and mathematics
honors major for two years, had
fulfilled the language and dis-
tribution requirements and had
,received a National Science
Foundation grant when he
switched into the BGS last year.
"I just got fed up with every-
one I was working with," he ex-
plains. "Finally I just said to
hell with it and switched into
the BGS."

Dean Baker. LSA assistant
dean and chairman of junior
and senior counseling, recalls
that "a lot of people assumed
the BGS was going to be sole-
ly a refuge for goof-offs.
"You do get a certain number
of people who are going on it be-
cause they have had difficulty
with language, science or some
other requirements," he c o n-
tinues. "But on the other hand,
you also get people with v e r y
good records who want, it be-
cause they find the major too
Psychology Prof. Ronald Ti-"
kof sky. secretary ofthe LSA
curriculum committee, questions
the validity of criticizing stu-
dents who elect the BGS to get
out of the language requirement.
"One must not ask what to do
about those students, but rather
one must ask why they are in
fact trying to get out of the re-
quirement," Tikofsky s a y s .
"Many students not taking the
BGS may be taking so much
time with language that' it is
detrimental to their other sub-
He adds, "BGS students are
no different from any o t h e r
students. It is.being elected in
part to get a liberal, broad edu-
In view of the projected
growth of the BGS program at
W aterbei

the University. it is quite likely
that the various kinds of study
undertaken and the motivation
for electing the tBGS will in-
crease along with the number
of students entering the pro-
'One thing is clear." says LSA
Acting Dean Alfred Sussman.
"and that is an acceptance of
the BGS degree on the part of
the University community, es-
pecially students."
Commenting on the initial
BGS report, Sussman says
"there seems to be some dif-
ferences between students w h o
elect the degree and students
who don't - and they are in-
"The question is just how sig-
nificant these differences are,
and they will require more
study." he adds.
Earlier in the month, the LSA
faculty decided to keep a close
watch on the BGS program in
the future. Facultymembers
called for a follow-up to the in-
itial BGS report within the next
two years.
Based on its present status,
however, and taking into ac-
count its rapid growth, the posi-
tive reaction which graduate
schools have for the degree, and
the highly capable student
which it seems to be attracting,
the future of the BGS program
at the University seems secure.
