  1. THE REASONS BEHIND THE STUDENTS’ CHOICES OF CERTAIN MAJORS AND ITS IMPACT ON SOCIETAL NEEDS Dr. ZahaAlsuwailan Dr. KalthoumAlkandari Kuwait University

  2. Introduction One of the main goals of the college of education is to provide a workforce for society. Many schools in different areas are in need of teachers in different subjects. Yet, many schools have shortages of teachers in certain majors which has led to outsourcing to foreign labour .

  3. Purpose of the Study This study aims to determine the personal and social reasons behind the students' selections of certain majors in the college of education at both Kuwait University and PAAT. It also measures the effect of the students' choices on society’s needs.

  4. Methodology The quantitative research of this study answers the following questions: 1- What are the most and least popular majors among the students in the college of education? 2- What are the majors that have reached a sufficient level in public schools?

  5. 3- Is there an alignment between the outputs of the college of education and society’s needs? 4- What are the reasons behind the students’ heading toward certain majors in the college of education?

  6. Data Collection This study adopted a quantitative study approach to investigate the reasons behind the students’ choices of certain majors. A questionnaire was adopted in order to understand the impact of the students’ personal and societal motivation on their choices. A statistic was also provided from the Ministry of Education in this study to see if there was an alignment between the outcomes of the college of education and the public schools’ needs.

  7. Q1:What are the most and least popular majors among the students in the college of education?

  11. Q3:Is there an alignment between the outputs of the college of education and society’s needs?

  12. It Appears from the previous table that there are some subjects that have become an overload in some schools. Yet the alignment is somehow missing.

  13. Q4:What are the reasons behind the students’ heading toward certain majors in the college of education?

  14. Recommendations Students needs to be guided to different majors from high schools. Social studies, Islamic Studies and Kindergarten majors in the college of Education need to be joined to other majors. E.g (Kindergarten and Psychology, Islamic Studies and Arabic, Social Studies and Philosophy). Students need to be directed to certain majors in the College of Education.
