ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to identify the motives for the youth-related majors in choosing their major, and to identify the characteristics of each student by categorizing their perceptions. Method: The Q method was used to find out the motives for selecting majors of youth-related students, and 30 students majoring in youth-related studies in the metropolitan area were selected as P-sample and data were collected. For the Q sample, the final 30 questions were derived through focus group interview and literature study and analyzed through the QUANL PC1.2 program. Results: Through this, the recognition types of major selection motives of youth-related students were largely derived into four types, and the types of recognition are as follows. Type 1 is the 'individual value pursuit type', which puts priority on one's personality and values, type 2 is the 'professional-related type', in which he chose a major because he became interested through his experiences in youth activities, and type 3 is for others. The 'mentor type', who chose a major under the influence, and wants to be a role model for the youth, and the 4th type, a 'shared growth type' who wants to be a member of social development according to the needs of the times as well as self-development. Implications: Based on the results of this study, it was possible to find out what process the students selected their majors through, and it could be seen that this had a great impact on their college life and future careers. Therefore, this study provides basic data for career exploration of students who have chosen youth-related majors. We hope to help establish the identity of the youth-related department in the future.
