Abstract

Universities have an interest in supporting students' learning process so that they can complete their study period. Universities should support the fulfillment of students' needs in carrying out thesis completion activities. Data were collected through distributing questionnaires to 170 respondents who were FISIP students at public university in Lampung with a background in 6 undergraduate study programs and literature studies. The data obtained was then analyzed by mapping student needs based on Maslow's hierarchy of needs. In this process, the fulfillment of student needs is also important and needs to be considered. Using Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory which comes in eight levels, this research has categorized and the results show that there are many needs fulfillment that have not been maximized at each level. Results indicate that numerous needs across the eight levels of Maslow's hierarchy have not been fully met. The study primarily concentrates on level five, cognitive needs, considering the student status of the respondents. The findings reveal suboptimal fulfillment of both esteem and cognitive needs. Specifically, at the cognitive level, students' needs are not maximized, and at the esteem level, there is room for improvement. Notably, the study highlights mental health as a critical concern, with students expressing susceptibility to depression and a need for counseling.
