This manuscript conducts a study of student work ethic and provides a comparison between the employment work ethic and academic work ethic of undergraduates. Findings suggest that while overall work ethic for both academics and employment can be considered "high," the concept of doing more than is required in academics is not highly valued by students. Unexpectedly, it was found that males and females exhibit significantly different work ethics regarding academics. Females, more than males, have a level of work ethic toward academics that is very similar to their work ethic toward employment.
