Abstract [sv]

Stress och stressrelaterade sjukdomar är ett problem i dagens samhälle och de som främst är drabbade är unga människor. Stressen är dessutom ojämnställt fördelad då kvinnor drabbas värre än män. För studenter kan stress vara en faktor som påverkar deras studieprestation negativt. Syftet med studien var att undersöka självupplevd stress bland högskolestudenter på Mälardalens högskola samt analysera om det finns skillnader avseende kön och utbildningsprogram. Studien hade en kvantitativ ansats där en tvärsnittsdesign användes. Data samlades in genom enkäter och totalt besvarades 72 enkäter av studenter ifrån fyra olika program på Mälardalens högskola. Data analyserades genom chi-2-tester i statistikprogrammet SPSS. Resultatet visar att studenterna upplever ett visst mått av stress men inte kan sägas vara mycket stressade eller fria från stress. Resultatet visade både köns- och programskillnader som inte var statistiskt signifikanta. Programskillnaderna kunde dock härledas till könsskillnaderna då tre av fyra program var antingen starkt mans- eller kvinnodominerade. Slutsatserna av studien är att studenterna upplever en viss stress samt att det fanns skillnader avseende kön och program som ej var statistiskt signifikanta.

Abstract [en]

Stress and stress related diseases is a problem in today’s society and those most affected by it are young people. The stress is also unequal as women are more affected than men. For students stress can be a factor that affects their performance in school negatively. The aim of the study was to investigate for perceived stress among students at Mälardalen University and analyze gender and study program differences. The study had a quantitative approach and was conducted thru a cross-sectional study. The study was answered by 72 questionnaires that were completed by students from four study programs at Mälardalen University. The data of the study was analyzed by chi-2-tests in the data program SPSS. The result of the study gave an account of the perceived stress among the students who reported to perceive some stress, but it was neither high nor low. The results showed gender- and study program-differences that were not statistically significant. However the differences among study programs could be traced to the gender differences as three out of four programs were male or female dominated. The conclusions of the study are that the students have some perceived stress and that there are some differences in perceived stress for gender and study programs that are not statistically significant.
