Abstract

Nuns are a group of Catholic women who choose not to marry in order to focus on special service in the Church according to the rules of the congregation. Some nuns undergo study missions or become female students on public campuses. This research specifically wants to examine how the learning motivation of students who are nuns is. Researchers want to find out how they increase their motivation to learn while still carrying out the demands of the community or institute. This study uses a qualitative method conducted on 4 nuns who are undergoing studies at a university in Yogyakarta. The results of the study showed that they had a unique motivation to learn. The nuns have an intrinsic motivation to learn, namely the desire and awareness to complete their studies quickly. Obedience to the task of community mission is the most powerful extrinsic motivation that influences the ability and interest in learning of Catholic nuns. Tugas perutusan itu melahirkan motivasi dari dalam diri (intrinsic) yaitu tanggung jawab untuk menyelesaikan tugas yang dipercayakan oleh kongregasi. Para biarawati juga menghadapi tantangan-tantangan dalam belajar terutama penyesuaian diri karena usia yang berbeda serta tuntutan hidup sebagai biarawati. Penelitian selanjutnya perlu memperhatikan frekuensi dan intensitas wawancara serta perlu melibatkan pihak-pihak lain yang mengenal para biarawati yang sedang studi.
