Stage fright is a large problem even for college students, who have chosen an occupation direction where standing on a scene is a common occurrence. Stage fright can imply that individuals abandon occupation directions they are interested in and can impair performances and health. The purpose with this thesis is to examine whether there is any differences between teacher- and engineering students at the LTU, when it comes to stage fright. A first hypothesis is that stage fright is lower in the college program, where public performances happen regularly and in this case the teacher programs. A second hypothesis is that the teacher students apply coping strategies to a smaller degree and a third hypothesis is that stage fright is lower for men. A questionnaire was administered to four college classes. The results show that the engineering students experienced public speaking occasions as more stressful than the teacher students, which confirms the hypothesis. Moreover, it turned out that the teacher students applied more coping strategies than the engineering students, but the difference was not statistically significant and the hypothesis was rejected. Finally, the results show that women experience public performance occasions as more stressful than men, especially during the presentation act when they were exposed to more symptoms, which is in accordance to the hypothesis.
