A RESEARCH ON ENVIRONMENTAL SENSITIVITY OF UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

Positive and rapid developments in the technology, communication and transportation sectors have led to the reduction of distances and the emergence of globalization. These developments together with the level of industrialization and urbanization have become increasingly important problems of environmental pollution. More and more research has been done in this area as environmental problems, which were initially ignored, reached increasingly dangerous dimensions. This research aims to contribute to all relevant stakeholders both in the subject literature and in the related literature. The research was conducted to determine the sensitivity of the students at Kilis 7 Aralık University Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences to the environment. The survey investigated whether some of the students' personal characteristics (gender, age, level of income, type of program and type of education) led to differences in their perceptions of environmental sensitivities. It was used a 22-question questionnaire developed through literature search in the research. Within the scope of the research, 400 student questionnaires were applied. Through this questionnaire, it was tried to determine the opinions of the students about the environmental sensitivity behaviors and the adequacy of the environmental education they have received in the organized educational institutions. For the validity of the questionnaire, expert opinion was taken and reliability studies were made and SPSS Data Analysis Program was used in the analysis of data.
