Abstract

In my research I sought out to test the hypothesis whether disconnection with career planning/ job prospects is associated with higher levels of alcohol use. The hypothesis follows from Emile Durkheim’s theory regarding anomie that holds if social and moral norms are unclear it can lead to deviant behavior and lack of stability in other aspects of life. Insufficient integration in culture and society has negative consequences for the individual. The research design was quantitative, more specifically a cross sectional survey. It was administered through; Survey Monkey, with a web link sent out to participants via Facebook and Email. A non-probability, purposive sampling design was conducted and derived a sample of 88 undergraduate males and females. The Pearson correlations test was conducted which found the bivariate relationship not significant. A multiple regression was conducted between the independent variable and family functioning to further analyze the data and proved to be insignificant.
