Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu çalışma Ondokuz Mayıs Üniversitesi ortak seçmeli dersleri arasında yer alan Çevre ve Eğitim dersini seçen öğrencilerin, bu dersi seçmedeki önceliklerini belirlemek amacıyla yapılmıştır. Bunun için küçük bir gruptan bilgi elde etmede faydalı bir metot olan Nominal Grup Tekniği (NGT) kullanılmıştır. NGT, öğrenci veya personele kolaylıkla uygulanabilen, basit ama önemli bir eğitim araştırma metodudur. Çalışma NGT'nin birbirini takip eden farklı aşamaları göz önünde tutularak yapılmıştır. Bu çalışma sonucunda Çevre ve Eğitim dersini seçen öğrencilerin bu dersi seçme kararlarında etkili olan faktörler arasında, üniversitenin OSD sistemindeki teknik aksaklıkların, ilgi alanlarının, dersi veren hocanın özellikleri ve ders geçme kaygıları gibi faktörlerin etkili olduğu ortaya çıkmıştır.
