Starting the Semester at Odds: Educators' Versus Students' Reasons for Studying Science
Smith, Walter S.; Gould, Suzanne M.; Jones, James A.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v34 n3 p44-49 Nov-Dec 2004
In contrast with statements by institutions and science organizations about why science should be studied, nonscience majors at two-and four-year institutions said they were enrolled in a science course because it was required rather than because it would help them get the job they desired or would enrich them personally. (Contains 2 tables and 5 figures.)
