Abstract [sv]

Det här är en undersökning om studenters intresse för en områdesfördjupning på sjökaptensprogrammet på Kalmar Sjöfartshögskola. Syftet var att undersöka intresset hos studenterna kring att introducera valbara kurser om 7,5 högskolepoäng i programmets senare del. Den allmänna uppfattningen inom svensk sjöfart är att sjökaptensprogrammet på Kalmar Sjöfartshögskola är en bred utbildning.  Utbildningen erbjuder inga valbara kurser eller inriktningar även om arbetet som styrman idag blir mer och mer specialiserat.

Studien genomfördes genom intervjuer med två studenter som gick sista året 2013 och tre verksamma styrmän som tagit examen år 2012. Alla intervjuade respondenter hade läst eller läste vid intervjutillfället på Sjökaptensprogrammet på Kalmar Sjöfartshögskola.

Studien visade på en önskan hos respondenterna vad gällde ökad valbarhet i utbildningen, men samtidigt en ovilja att kompromissa utbildningens bredd. Respondenterna underströk vikten av möjligheten att få läsa CCM och DP-Basic, dels för en förbättrad konkurrenskraft på en ansträngd arbetsmarknad och dels för att de kurserna ofta krävs inom den arbetsmarknadssektor som ett stort antal studenter söker sig till. 

Abstract [en]

This is a survey of students' interest in an area specialization in the Nautical Science program at Kalmar Maritime Academy. The aim was to investigate the interest within the student community regarding introducing elective courses of 7.5 credits in the second half of the program. The general opinion in Swedish shipping is that the nautical science program at Kalmar Maritime Academy is a broad education. The program has no elective courses and specializations available; this at a time when the work as an officer is becoming more and more specialized.

The study was conducted through interviews with two final year students of 2013 and three active officers who graduated in 2012. All respondents who were interviewed had studied or were studying at the time of the interview at the Nautical Science program at Kalmar Maritime Academy.

The study showed a desire among the respondents regarding increased eligibility in the program but also unwillingness to compromise the width of the education. The respondents emphasized the importance of having the possibility to study CCM and DP-Basic, partly for an improved competitiveness in a strained labor market and partly due to fact that these courses are often required within the employment sector to which a large number of students will approach.
