The objective of this investigation is to make a study of the relationship between achievement goals and science motivation. Research data were collected from 295 university students. Achievement goals and science motivation scales were utilized as measure tools. The link between achievement goals orientation and science motivation was investigated by statistical package for social sciences. Correlation analysis demonstrated that sub dimensions of achievement goals; related positively to science motivation. Besides, the connection between achievement goals and science motivation still requires further research because of some limitations. Thus, in addition to intervention strategies, further investigation should include more factors for achievement goals and investigate its effect on adolescents' science motivation. Findings were discussed with regard to the relevant literature.
