This study surveyed students who took computer programming (Python) courses established as liberal arts education, and investigated their motivation for taking this class, their intentions of taking advanced courses, and their confidence in the computing language. The purpose of this study was to suggest improvements in education in light of the recent increase of such classes. The collected data was subjected to descriptive statistics analysis, correlation analysis, and regression
more » ... t, as a result of this study we found that the more knowledge the students gained about IT through the class, the more inclined they were to take an advanced course. Therefore, we can predict that the level of academic motivation felt by the students will increase when the students learn not only the technical aspects of programming in Python, but also knowledge related to the application of a programming course in society.Second, the students said that the more helpful their tutor was, the more confident they became in their studies of Python, and the more their skill improved when it came to programming in this language. Furthermore, considering that tutors can play a key role in helping students to learn, and that their help has a significant influence on the confidence level of students, I strongly recommend that universities introduce a 'tutoring system' for increasing the effects of education.
