Abstract

The theoretical part of the paper looks at the phenomenon of values and value orientations and explains, by focusing on the Rokeach Value List, different classifications of the values and value orientations of the younger population. At the end of the school year 2014/15, a partially revised Rokeach Survey of Terminal Values was conducted on a random sample of 252 students of the Pedagogical Faculty in Uzice which is mainly attended by students from Zlatibor district. The basic goal of the survey was to determine how students of the Pedagogical Faculty assess their current terminal values - goals, as well as to establish whether there were any differences among the surveyed generations. The ranking list of values at the manifest level was determined by applying the arithmetic mean and standard deviation. The obtained results indicate that the students of the Pedagogical Faculty are oriented towards the following life goals: family safety, happiness, freedom. However, some differences in the ranking of other terminal values have been identified. The results of the research are significant because they suggest the need for a constant review of the value structure from the perspective of students who are exposed to intensive technical-technological, demographic, globalisation and other changes. The identification of values and lifestyles of students has pedagogical and social importance and provides significant insights into personal profiles of young people preparing for a particular occupation.
