Is Double-Degree Goal Equally Good for All Students? Moderating Impact of Interval Activity Style (Czy studia na drugim kierunku sluza wszystkim studentom? Modyfikuj¹cy efekt przedzialowego stylu aktywnosci )
Similarly as in the USA, more and more students in Poland decide to pursue multiple degrees in order to improve their chances of success on the job market. The aim of the study (N = 1070) was to investigate some differences between students who aim at double degree with those who study one major only. The role of the range of goal categories connected with interval vs. point activity style (Wieczorkowska & Burnstein 1999, 2004 a, b) was analyzed. Data confirmed that Intervalists are more likely to choose two majors and if they do that they feel better than if they do not (which shows the importance of Goal-Activity Style congruence). Limitations of the study and further research directions are discussed.
