The Influence of Higher Studies on the Individual`s Self-realization (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrunden till studien härrör i att människan förändras mot bakgrund av sociala sammanhang, exempelvis i form av fritidsintressen, familj och vänner, som hon är en del av eller tar del av. Utgångspunkten har i det här fallet varit att undersöka hur den personliga utvecklingen kan påverkas av en tids studier på högre nivå. Således syftar undersökningen till att utforska om det, utifrån studentens motivation, finns någon relation mellan vägen till självförverkligande och högre studier. Undersökningsmaterialet innefattar empiriska data i form av intervjuer med studenter från skilda utbildningsinstitutioner vid Karlstad universitet som har minst 80 poäng, varav 60 poäng i ett ämne. Intervjuerna behandlar frågor som berör studentens förhållande till familj, vänner, fritid och studiesituation. Med utgångspunkt i Charles Taylors självförverkligandeteori synliggörs undersökningspersonernas personliga utveckling under studieperioden. Analysen visar att studiernas påverkan på undersökningspersonerna varierar. De flesta utvecklas på det personliga planet även om studierna i vissa fall inte synes ha något inflytande. I något fall upplevs inte studierna vara personligt utvecklande.

Abstract [en]

The background of this study emanates from individuals’ change in relation to their social context, such as leisure time activities, family, and friends, which they participate in and take part off. This study takes it starting point in examining the possible influence of advanced studies in higher education on personal development. The aim is to investigate whether there is any relation, on basis of the student’s motivation for higher studies, between higher education and the way to self-realization. The empirical data consists of interviews with students, from different faculties at the University of Karlstad, who has at least 2 years (80 credit points) of university training off which 60 points concern of specific scientific subject. The interview questions address the relationship between the student and their family and friends. Personal development has been assessed in relation to Charles Taylor’s self-realization theory. The analysis shows that the influence of higher education on self-realization varies. Most respondents in the survey group experienced personal growth during their study time although their studies, in some cases did not seem to have had any effect. Some respondents did not experience personal growth at all.
