Pritchard submits research on students’ personalities in selecting a satisfying major

CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

Assistant Professor Andrew Pritchard and colleagues from other institutions submitted research to Learning and Individual Differences on the role of a student’s personality in selecting a satisfying major. Their study found that personality not only influences the choice of major directly but also predicts the salience of other influences (such as parents’ opinions or a program’s reputation) on the decision and the likelihood of a student being satisfied with his or her major. Pritchard also began a term of service on ISU’s student publications board.
