dc.description.abstract This study evaluated factors associated with major choice and academic experience of student-athletes and employed students. Surveys were completed with items related to commitment to sport/job, self-esteem, locus of control, and overall academic experience. Ninety college students, 61 employed students and 29 student-athletes participated. Results indicated student-athletes reported they were more connected/close to their athletic team/associates than employed workers were to their coworkers/job. Student-athletes also reported a more external locus of control in academics than did employed students. Participants in the Business and Athletic Training/Coaching major cluster were found to have a more external locus of control than participants in the Other major cluster. M.A.
