INVESTIGATING PREPARATORY YEAR STUDENTS' RECOGNITION OF UNIVERSAL VALUES AT UNIVERSITY OF TABUK

S. Alshammary

University of Tabuk (SAUDI ARABIA)
Value education can enhance cross-cultural understanding and maintain diversity tolerance among world nations. For achieving such universal goals, higher education programs have to focus on universal human values in the offered courses and programs. Along with such global interest, the current study attempted to investigate Saudi university students’ recognition of the basic universal values in the courses they are studying at University of Tabuk. For collecting data of the current study, a list of universal value was prepared and two questionnaires were developed, validated, and implemented. The sample was (106) preparatory year students at University of Tabuk. Data analysis shown three main outcomes. First, the (15) suggested universal value were approved by (10) university professors. Second, preparatory year students highly recognized the 15 universal values. There were no statistically significant differences in students' value estimation due to their academic majors. Third, the participants admitted that the current offered courses support the target universal values. However, more explicit orientation courses on universal values should be offered. More advanced courses should be evaluated in the light of universal value education.
