Abstract

Abstract

Background: The effect of modernization can be different aspects of a person`s life. Modernization has been seen through education, communication and social support of individuals in the community. Young adults especially college students approach modernization from experiences during the academic period.

Aim: To study the perceived social support and attitude towards modernization among performing arts students.

Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among college students of Indira Kala Sangit Vishwavidyalaya, Khairagarh, Chhattisgarh, India. A total of 540 students were selected for the study through the enumeration method. Students were assessed through the semi-structured socio-demographic datasheet, the modernization scale, and multidimensional scale of perceived social support.

Results: Perceived social support found a significant positive correlation with attitude towards modernization. In regression analysis, overall perceived social support (family, friend and other support) strongly contributes to the variance on attitude towards modernization among performing arts students. Family support, other support, overall perceived social support and attitude towards modernization were more in female as compared to male with performing arts students.

Conclusions: Perceived social support strongly contributes and positive significant correlation to the variance on attitude towards modernization.
