The aim of this study is to investigate and measure postgraduate students' attitudes toward the Internet and computer use. Specifically, the present study sought answers to the following questions: What is the overall profile of postgraduate students' attitudes toward the Internet and computer use? Do postgraduate students' attitudes toward Internet and computer use differ in terms of gender? Do postgraduate students' attitudes toward the Internet and computer use in instruction differ in terms of field of study? Do postgraduate students' attitudes toward the Internet and computer use differ in terms of ethnicity? Do postgraduate students' attitudes toward the Internet and computer use differ in terms of age?
