Lin, Yii-Nii
College Student Journal, v46 n1 p51-66 Mar 2012
The purpose of this study was to describe the life experiences of science/engineering students who had been dissatisfied with their lives during graduate school in Taiwan. This study adopted a qualitative method of phenomenology utilizing in-depth interviews for data collection. Thirteen male and five female students with an average age of 24.85 participated in this study. Twelve participants were enrolled in master's programs and six participants came from doctoral programs. The two themes that emerged from the results revealed that students had a lack of motivation and preparation prior to enrollment, and were maladjusted to learning and life after enrollment.
