Youngju Hur


The purpose of this study is to understand the effect of individual and educational factors on convergence and creative competencies of university students. In order to achieve the research purpose, educational satisfaction and creativity and convergence capabilities were measured among 1,379 students in 2021, and multiple regression analysis was conducted using the optimization scale method. The findings showed that if educational satisfaction which is an educational factor that can be managed by a university is high, then the influence of individual factors on the convergence and creative competencies can be reduced. In addition, it was found that satisfaction with extra-curriculum did not affect convergence and creative competencies, but satisfaction with liberal arts and major curricula had an effect on convergence and creative competencies. In particular, it was found that satisfaction with the major curriculum had greater influence on convergence competency, and satisfaction with the liberal arts curriculum had greater influence on creative competency. Based on the research results, it is recommended that universities open various liberal arts and major subjects, and maintain a high level of quality according to the students’ level. Moreover, liberal arts subjects must be directed towards improving creativity, and major subjects must be focused on improving job performance for employment.
