The overall aim of this Seminari paper was to study the differences of motivation between the students of the Faculty of Philosophy and the Faculty of Science and Technology – both of which are under the University of Tartu. Amongst other factors, I measured the differences regarding the sex of the student. I also aimed to adapt the Academic Motivation Scale (AMS-C 28) College (CEGEP) Version (AMS) into Estonian, and by doing that, I was able to apply the scale to the current research project. The respectful questionnaire was presented to the students via the Internet (TÜPH media of research). I used the SPSS program for my data analysis. The results showed that students from the Faculty of Philosophy have a higher inner motivation (p=0.014; p<0.05), but a lower outer motivation (p=0.031; p<0.05) in academic achievements compared to the students in the Faculty of Science and Technology. The results also showed that women tend to have a higher inner motivation (p=0.20; p< 0.05) as well as a higher outer motivation (p=0.002; p<0.05) in academic achievements. Data analysis showed, that the internal consistency of the AMS was high (corrected Cronbach’s α=0.820).
