Abstract

Bu araştırmanın amacı eğitim fakültesi öğrencilerinin bölümlerini isteyerek seçmeleri, bölümleriyle ilgili bir alanda çalışmayı istemeleri, kariyer uyumları ve birey-bölüm uygunluk düzeylerinin bölüm memnuniyetinin önemli düzeyde yordayıcısı olup olmadığını incelemektir. Araştırmada Savickas'ın kariyer yapılandırma kuramı ve Holland'ın meslek seçimi kuramı temel alınmıştır. Araştırmada yordamaya yönelik ilişkisel model kullanılmıştır. Araştırma grubunu bir devlet üniversitesinin eğitim fakültesi lisans programlarında öğrenimlerine devam eden 828 öğrenci oluşturmaktadır. Hiyerarşik regresyon analizi sonucunda kariyer uyumunun ilgi, kontrol, güven alt boyutlarının öğrencilerin bölüm memnuniyetinin önemli yordayıcıları olduğu, merak alt boyutunun bölüm memnuniyetinin önemli bir yordayıcısı olmadığı bulunmuştur. Ayrıca birey-bölüm uygunluğu, bölümünü isteyerek seçme ve bölümüyle ilgili bir alanda çalışmayı isteme değişkenlerinin, öğrencilerin bölüm memnuniyetinin önemli yordayıcıları olduğu görülmüştür.

Predictors of Major Satisfaction Among Education Students

Year 2021, Volume 11, Issue 63, 471 - 486, 31.12.2021

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine whether education students' career adaptability, person–major fit, willingness to work in an area related to one’s major and voluntary choice of it are significant predictors of major satisfaction. In this study, Savickas’ career construction theory and Holland’s theory of vocational choice were used. The research was designed according to the correlational model and included 828 students from the education department of a public university. The results of the hierarchical regression analysis showed that the concern, control, and confidence subscales under career adaptability were significant predictors of major satisfaction, but the curiosity subscale was not. In addition, person–major fit, willingness to work in an area related to one’s major in the future, and voluntary choice of one’s major were significant predictors of major satisfaction among the students.
