Abstract

This study investigated the impact of financial education as part of a liberal arts course on college students. A pretest-posttest design was used with a questionnaire being administered to 100 students who participated in a program on financial behavior and its educational significance. The results indicated that all 10 financial behaviors of the participants improved after the program. The greatest improvement was observed in students living in dormitories, who started to become financially independent of their parents and plan their lives with a long-range focus. Furthermore, this program was evaluated as having suitable content and appropriate duration for college students. It also suggested positive feedback as a means for them to explore their career development options.
