The aim of this research is to analyze the motivations of Psychology students to enroll in this degree and the relationship among motivations, irrational beliefs and the perceived personal competence. The sample consisted of 121 subjects, all students of Psychology at the University of Girona; 83.5% were women. The results indicate that overcoming problems related to affect and concern about social relationships was the main motivation to study Psychology and that such goals are negatively correlated with the perception of personal competence but are not associated with irrational beliefs. Significant differences in motivations to study Psychology have been found between first-year and four- and five-year students ​
