Currently there is no record of what the “typical” WPI student thinks of the current Humanities and Arts and Social Science requirements. Large scale data collection using a sample size of at least 350 students was required to get an accurate interpretation of undergraduate opinion. It was found that students understand the Humanities and Arts requirements more than the Social Sciences requirement, that students prefer to took classes they were interested in and that fit into their schedules rather than taking classes that would prepare them for the future, and that about 1/3 of students thought that the required number of Humanities and Arts classes was too high.
