Abstract

This study examined the power of Super’s work values in discriminating between engineering and liberal arts students. Three analyses were performed, one for each of the different factors of the work values. The major findings were: all three dimensions discriminate effectively between the two programs, the work values which discriminate in favor of liberal arts students tend to focus on general aspects of the work, and the work values favoring engineering students are values relevant to specific aspects of their perceived jobs. The implications of the findings are discussed.
