This study analyzes the relation between students’ academic major satisfaction and their attitudes in three areas (literature, English, and occupation), focusing on their subjective and psychological experiences in English department. We examine students’ need satisfaction with a model specifying three need factors (autonomy, competence, and relatedness) and two latent method factors (satisfaction and dissatisfaction) based on the Balanced Measure of Psychological Needs (BMPN). The satisfied group demonstrates the higher level of satisfaction than the other in all three areas, and the area of literature is where the most significant difference lies. The average of the difference between the two groups in the area of literature is almost close to 0.6 (t=3.83, p<0.001). This study proves the importance of literature education in English major and provides a basis for developing a future curriculum to meet students’ internal needs in their field of study.
