Abstract


The purposes of this research were to survey and compare Dhurakij Pundit University students’ attitudes toward the ASEAN Community. The samples consisted of 260 first-year students from the Faculties of Accountancy, Tourism and Hospitality, and Engineering. The attitude test was designed to measure their attitudes toward the ASEAN Community. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, independent t-test, and one-way ANOVA. The results indicated that 1) The majority of the students (59.2%) had a slightly high level of overall attitudes toward the ASEAN Community. When considering each item, it was found that the highest mean score concerned the impact of the ASEAN Community on their lives in the future, while learning the national languages of ASEAN countries yielded the lowest mean score. 2) There was no statistically significant difference in the levels of attitudes toward the ASEAN Community between male and female students, but there was a statistically significant difference in the levels of attitudes among the students with different faculties.
