Abstract

Undergraduate psychology students often face various situations that can cause symptoms of academic burnout. Previous studies found that social support is related to academic burnout. This study used a quantitative method to determine the differences in academic burnout among undergraduate psychology students regarding types of social support sources. This study’s types of social support sources are family, friends, and significant others. A total of 434 students from the Department of Psychology at Universitas Negeri Makassar were selected using consecutive sampling. The measurement instruments used were the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (MBI-SS) with a reliability coefficient of 0,836 and the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) with a reliability coefficient 0,925. Data were collected via online questionnaires. Data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA analysis with the help of JASP 0.17.1 software. The results showed no significant difference in academic burnout regarding social support sources (p = 0.640). An additional result showed the coefficient of determination (R2) value of 0.093, which means that social support can explain 9.3% of the variation in academic burnout. The significance value is 0.000 (p < 0.05), meaning social support predicts academic burnout significantly. The implication of this study is social support from family, friends, and significant others describes the same academic burnout.
