Abstract

This study aimed to demonstrate the relationship between the personal characteristics and participation in dance of dance major university students and their career decision making self-efficacy and career preparation behavior, and thus provide the basic data necessary to make a plan for career support and counseling of dance major students. To attain the objective, this study randomly sampled and conducted a survey with a total of 385 dance major students from 5 universities among 4-year universities with the department of dance, located in 3 regions (Seoul, Kyunggi Province and Daejeon). The collected data were statistically analyzed for one-way ANOVA and multiple regression analysis. Through the foregoing process, the results were attained as follows. First, there was a significant difference in career decision making self-efficacy by the personal characteristics of the dance major university students. Second, when the difference in career decision making self-efficacy by participation in dance was examined, it turned out that there was a significant difference in choice of goal by major field; in future plan by perceived ability of dance; but no difference in future plan by participation period in dance. Third, there was a significant difference in information collection and career aptitude test by gender and in career counseling, information collection and career aptitude test by school year. Fourth, there was a significant difference in career counseling by major field and in information collection and career aptitude test by participation period in dance.
