Abstract/Description

We are interested in studying the level of financial literacy Murray State students have as well as improving their knowledge about financial planning. Our research questions include finding out what topics need to make up a financial literacy program (e.g., investing, planning for retirement, paying off debt, etc.) and finding out how to best reach the targeted audience. During the process of researching these questions, we want to identify the type of program(s) that would best benefit students seeking to gain or improve upon financial knowledge, find the best way to implement the kind of program students would utilize (e.g., transitions class, elective class, graduate requirement, seminar, etc.), and develop steps to improve upon already-existing financial literary services offered by the University. We hypothesize Murray State students are not financially literate and are unaware of the programs that the University offers. This research project seeks to educate students before it is too late.
