|Title:||The relationship between values and academic major in a sampled Chinese university students in Hong Kong||Author(s):||Wong, Shui Wai||Issue Date:||2021||Publisher:||Sage Publications||Journal:||Journal of Education||Abstract:||
This study investigates the relationship between values and academic major in university students in Hong Kong. The study used a survey based on a convenience sample of 645 university students in Hong Kong who responded to a questionnaire comprising Schwartz’s Values Survey and Super’s Work Values Inventory. Comparison between several majors of study and their counterparts reveals that business, as well as humanities and art, students demonstrated general and work values in accordance with the literature. This gains partial support to the claim that there is a close connection between values and choice of academic majors.
