Career Expectations and Learning Behavior of Undergraduate Students in China
In China, while the problem of undergraduates' job shortage aggravated, it came to be said that the study in college is not helpful. Therefore, the quality in higher education came to be a big issue, and universities are required to improve the quality of education. This paper aims to figure out how undergraduates are learning at the university and how the process is different with their career expectation. On the basis of a study survey, this paper examines the following two points as research issued: 1) How the undergraduates learning at the university and what about their ideas about the course after graduate. 2) How the learning behavior of the undergraduates is different with their career expectation. The main findings are as follows: 1) there are three patterns about the learning behavior of undergraduates in China. One is to study positively, but be tortured for the meaning of study, in order to employ in employment efficiently. The second is to study negatively because the course after graduate has not been decided. And the third is that the learning behavior is not related with their career expectation, for it is thought to be not helpful to the early occupational attainment. 2) The relevance between undergraduates' learning behavior and their career expectation is influenced by the rank of a university. Their learning behavior is much better in the high rank university.
