In 1943, Abraham Maslow proposed a theory of motivation referred to as the hierarchy of needs. Levels 1-4 of the hierarchy pertain to achieving deficit human needs such as food, water, shelter, financial security, love, and respect. Maslow argues that when all of deficit needs are met, humans become motivated to pursue self-actualization (i.e., fulfillment of ones potential), which is considered a being need. In the quote above, Maslow refers to achieving self-actualization through education. Certainly, your motivation to obtain a degree may come from the intrinsic motivation to fulfill your potential or to expand your knowledge in a subject that interests you. However, unless you are independently wealthy, you probably have more practical reasons for pursuing a degree. For example, you might be extrinsically motivated to obtain a degree because you know it will lead to a promotion and better pay, which would help you meet the deficit needs in Maslows hierarchy.
In this discussion, you will examine your motivations for pursuing a degree, based on Maslows hierarchy of needs and other theories of motivation. As you do so, keep in mind that human motivation is culturally bound, therefore, it can be difficult to generalize theories of motivation across cultures.
