ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationships between multiple intelligence, academic self-efficacy, satisfaction with major in dental hygiene students. Methods: A self-reported questionnaire was filled out by 490 dental hygiene students in Jeonbuk from March to April, 2015. The questionnaire consisted of 119 questions of multiple intelligences, 28 questions of academic self-efficacy, 5 questions of satisfaction with major by Likert 5 scale. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, Pearson’s correlation test, and stepwise multiple regression test using SPSS 18.0 program. Results: The students had the highest score in interpersonal intelligence(3.57) and the lowest in naturalist intelligence(2.66). There was a positive correlation between the multiple intelligences, academic self-efficacy and satisfaction with major(p<0.05). The impact of multiple intelligences on academic self-efficacy was influenced by logical-mathematical intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence, musical intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, and linguistic intelligence(p<0.05). The variables that had an impact on multiple intelligences and satisfaction with major were interpersonal intelligence and intrapersonal intelligence(p<0.01). Conclusions: The development of multiple intelligences can enhance the satisfaction with the major, quality of education, academic self-efficacy in the dental hygiene students.
