Annotation: The article discusses the motivation of the educational activities of bachelor students in the direction of "Social Work". The factors and stages of the motivation process, the dynamic characteristics of the motivation system are revealed. The role of the motivational block in the structure of educational activities of students is revealed. A comparative analysis of the motivational profile of students is carried out on the basis of studies of learning motivation conducted by the author in 2015 and 2019. Diagnostic tools have become the methodology "Studying the motivation of learning at a university" T.I. Il’ina and "Studying the motives of students' teaching activities" by Artur Rean and Valeriy Yakunin. An additional research method was the analysis of essays in which students argue for the presence or absence of a desire to continue their education in a chosen direction and to continue to work in the social sphere. The results obtained made it possible to single out the most significant learning motives and their dynamics among students of the Social Work direction. An analysis of the essay showed that in general, about 80% of students spoke more positively about the prospect of working in their acquired specialty. In conclusion, a conclusion is drawn about the growth of motivation indicators on the scale of "mastering a profession", maintaining the significance of the "motives acquiring knowledge" and "obtaining a diploma", as well as the inclusion of the motive "receive intellectual satisfaction" as the priority motive instead of "gaining the approval of parents and others".
Keywords: learning motivation, social work, students, obtaining diploma, acquiring knowledge, mastering profession, components of learning motivation, essay.
