WHY LIBERAL ARTS?

YOU GET IT think you

It's there in your imagination: a picture of what your liberal arts education will be like. You know it will broadly prepare you for a bit of everything that comes after college, instead of specifically preparing you for just one thing. You can see how a well-rounded education will add depth and meaning to your life. It just makes sense that future employers are going to want job candidates who can think critically, creatively,

and

globally.

They'll

want

informed communicators who are ready to take on careers that can't be taught, because they don't even exist yet. Yes, you understand the power of a liberal arts education. You get it.

one day

You'll really get it. The aha! moment will come in the form of a powerful epiphany, maybe a moment or two after a pizza-fueled debate about philosophy, or when you find out that you got the job—not because of what you said, but how you said it: confidently. Perhaps it will come to you in the shower, or right before you go to sleep one night as you’re arguing with yourself about which of the 12 ways you found to solve a problem is the best. It’ll dawn on you: a feeling, knowing that you've got this. The layers and layers of knowledge you’ve acquired at the University of Oregon are future-proofing you—preparing you for life, and a lifetime of careers.

Jordyn decided to double-major in cinema studies and physics. Interested in the science behind optics and the art of film, she didn’t settle for one or the other­— she chose both. It’s working out brilliantly for her. She’s already interned on the set of the TV show Portlandia and is winning awards and scholarships for her short films. That’s why we encourage you to go big and mix things up.

Why do humans go to war? What conditions could cause global economic systems to crash (again)? How can we end racial discrimination, poverty, sexism? First, learn how to observe, analyze, and take the long view. Take the anthropological, geographical, sociological, or historical view. Seek out a deeper understanding of people and politics, cultures, and environments. Conduct field research and apply technology to more astutely explain human behavior. Work together to find solutions for what ails society. Where do you want to start?


SOCIA L SCIENCES

This college is the heart of the university. It’s the academic epicenter for just about every student who comes to the UO, where you can learn about everything under the sun (and even the sun itself). It's where you'll find different vantage points to gain new insights on the world—and not just one type of world. We study the inner world of ideas, of imagination, the social world of human behavior and systems, the outer world of natural and physical phenomena—from nanoparticles to exoplanets. The College of Arts and Sciences is where some of the finest faculty on earth are doing groundbreaking research. They will challenge you to think big, to dive deep, to turn your assumptions upside down, inside out, and begin again.

This is where you’ll learn to research, to experiment, to theorize about quantum mechanics, model molecules, and decode DNA. It’s where you’ll create theories about the human mind, cures for the human body, and ways to heal the environment. This is where we work together to create new knowledge daily so we can share it with the world.

The timing was perfect for a couple of seniors who were eager to move beyond everyday course work, which, as Ryan put it, can feel a little like “jumping through the hoops that everyone has jumped through before you. With research, you’re contributing something new, something that hasn’t been done before.” cascade.uoregon.edu/pokingclouds

COLLISION COURSE The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) does just what its name implies. It makes atoms smash into each other at incredibly high speeds. Why? To release giant amounts of energy, and to discover the building blocks of matter. It’s also a headlinemaking machine—like in 2013, when researchers used the LHC to discover the Higgs boson particle. Trust us, for something so small, it’s a huge deal. How does such a big machine help find something so little? Stephanie Majewski knows. With her guidance, Stephanie’s students were tasked with developing algorithms—mathematical shortcuts— to sort through the trillions of data points and find the good stuff, so that physicists like Stephanie can get right to work, answering deep questions

Languages, philosophies, religions, theater, literature, folklore—why study the humanities? Because you’re human. They help us make sense of the world. They provide perspective. They give our lives context and meaning. They seek to explain what makes us tick: our customs, traditions, complex belief systems, and values. They explore how we express ourselves—to each other, on stage, on paper, on film. The humanities provide us with a forum to thoroughly, thoughtfully discuss what it means to be human—who we are and why we’re here.

ENVIRONMENTAL HUMANITIES Your assignment: create an Instagram gallery of images from the perspective of an animal, like a toad or a squirrel. Your next assignment: keep a detailed diary of your interactions with plastics over the course of a single day—food packaging, your phone, your sunglasses, your flip-flops. And then write a short story about the future of our species. These creative exercises—all taken from the syllabus for Introduction to Environmental Studies: Humanities— will get you to look at the environment in a different way—an imaginative way. It’ll move your thinking outside the box. It might be just what we need to address the world's biggest environmental challenges.

We’re determined, serious, and focused, but that’s where the similarities to a typical business school end. We know that business isn’t just about business. It’s about culture and collaboration, the environment, the economy, and the world. It’s an intersection where unstoppable forces crash into immovable objects—where calamities must be averted and opportunities are everywhere, ready to be seized. This is where we live, evaluate, work together not only to assemble our careers, but to make sure our careers have an impact on the world around us. We work to become stronger, smarter, learn to lead with authority, and discover what it truly means to be a Duck.

ROBERT D. CLARK HONORS COLLEGE

We’re one of the very first four-year honors colleges in the US. This is where award-winning faculty members work closely with a tight-knit group of exceptional students from every department and school. Here, no question or problem is off limits, even ones that are. The goal: foster original research and an intense, creative exchange of ideas. Every single student in the Clark Honors College is responsible for doing original research. All students form faculty committees to oversee their projects, and every student produces a final thesis or creative project that—who knows?—may just change the world.

ANOTHER REASON TO BE HERE. You don’t have to choose between a small liberal arts college and a large university to get both personalized attention and large university resources. In the Clark Honors College, you’ll find classes with as few as eight students, but you can still choose from more than 325 degree programs. Faculty members will give you focused attention and unparalleled access to research opportunities. Small. Big. You can have both.

IT’S AN HONOR What better way to finish your undergraduate experience than with honors? More than 40 academic departments offer honors programs—and while each program is different, many require advanced upper-division courses taken through the major department and completion of a research project.

VISUALIZING GRAPHICACY

THE TOP 4

ACCOUNTING FIRMS PICK FROM THE HONORS BUSINESS PROGRAM.

As a journalism student, Erin learned about data visualizations: “basically, telling stories with data.” So for her honors thesis, she researched the ability of visualizations to change people’s minds—instead, she found they were simply “confused by what they were trying to interpret.” Turns out, graphicacy (essentially, data visualization literacy) isn’t widespread. But it doesn’t worry Erin. Her background in journalism and computer science means she’s well-equipped to tell her own stories with data—and help teach graphicacy to the masses.

This is why the School of Journalism and Communication sends advertising and journalism students to Alaska to study climate change. Unexpected? Perhaps. Because advertising and journalism students aren’t biologists and climatologists, right? But they are creative individuals who are naturally good at reporting on and solving complex problems. So guess what happened next? They came back with a powerful understanding of what a changing climate means for wildlife habitats and the environment. They came back with answers, new questions, amazing pictures, and lots of stories. It all starts right here. Every year, we enable thousands of Ducks to get out into the world. We push them to follow their education wherever it may lead—down the street, across Oregon, across the country, around the world—and take the plunge into immersive experiences.

MYSTERIOUS. MONUMENTAL. MOAI. You’ve probably seen pictures of the moai statues on Rapa Nui (also known as Easter Island). The multi-ton carved stones have piqued a lot of people’s interest over the years, including UO grad Sean Hixon’s. Not only did he want to see them for himself, he wanted to do something that few have succeeded in doing—unravel some of the mystery surrounding the moai. Sean went to the island, took 15,000 photos (yes, 15,000) and used them to motion map the stones from many angles. His clever model proved that stone ramps, towers, and pulley systems were likely used to place huge rock “hats” on top of the statues. Pretty amazing, right? But what did you expect? He’s a Duck.

It’s kind of perfect—an extraordinary academic community surrounded by a quintessential college town. It’s alive with music, culture, food, art, and just the right amount of weird to keep things interesting.

Rain—it comes and goes as it pleases around here. We don’t mind. Because to Ducks, rain isn’t rain. It’s liquid sunshine. It keeps everything fresh, lush, and green. And somehow, it never shows up on game day at Autzen Stadium. Don’t worry, we have other weather, too. We’re outside year-round because of it (and sometimes in spite of it). Balmy summers with lots of sun. Cool, but not bitterly cold, winters. And, sometimes, snow.

Ducks don’t just play a few sports; they play practically every sport playable—at every skill level. Here, anyone can get a team up and running and have a good time. From dodgeball to bocce ball, swimming to soccer, and ultimate frisbee—it all happens here. rec.uoregon.edu

OUR FACILITIES FACILITATE GREATNESS No matter what or where you’re playing at the UO, one thing will be abundantly clear—we don’t do mediocre. Because when you compete at the highest levels of intercollegiate athletics, it’s not enough to just keep up with the competition—you have to best the best. Especially when it comes to providing top-notch training facilities. For the athletes climbing rock walls in the Student Rec Center, playing flag football on Jane Sanders Field, spiking on Mac Court, or crushing it on the softball diamond, we have only the best.

WIN THE DAY With 18 Division I sports to cheer for and 33 national championships under our belt, it’s true we have a lot to be proud of. But it’s not just about chalking up victories on national stages. It’s about being passionate about the sport you’re playing: on the field, or court, in the water—everywhere. Whether we’re playing football or softball, it’s about focusing on the moment, the crowd, the play, the forward motion. It’s about winning the day, every day. goducks.com

MAKE THE GREAT OUTDOORS GREATER This place gets in your head. It makes you want to jog forever, kayak through whitewater, and live life to the fullest. Hike up a mountain and camp in the clouds. Float down the Willamette, fish for a great story, pedal to the horizon, and just . . . explore. You’ll start early and go ’til whenever. Realize you’re very happy here. Mostly because here is here, but also because we’ll help you stay active.

You’ll be able to rent or borrow just about anything you can imagine. Need shoes, tents, or avalanche safety gear? You got it. Paddles and something to paddle, a bike, or a snowboard? Get what you need. Then get out there and go for it.

The difference is

WE EMBRACE OUR DIFFERENCES We’ve decided it’s not enough to just be different together. We want cultural collisions that lead to happy accidents, and crosspollination that leads to new perspectives about opinions and about points of view. We want thousands of brilliant students from Oregon, the US, and around the world learning from each other, speaking their minds, working, and sharing with each other, being inclusive and rigorously equitable. Discovery demands it. Excellence demands it. So we demand it, at every level. That’s how we do things here. As Ducks, we know the differences between us make us stronger and smarter together than we would be apart.

EA is an option that allows you to hear back earlier if you apply earlier. It also helps the Admissions Office keep up with our growing application pool. However, it doesn’t give you a better chance of admission or a leg up on housing or scholarships. So if you’re not ready, don’t worry, just meet the regular deadline.
