Abstract (300 words maximum)

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed how students learn. Many students had to adapt to an all-online class modality. With the increased use of online modality of classes, will burnout scores increase in college students? In previous studies, researchers have mainly focused on burnout in the workplace. There is a gap in the literature in student burnout which we plan to explore. Research about the academic workforce found that indicators of burnout have increased sharply. The current study investigated if a student's class modality influences burnout scores. Students will receive a survey asking about their class modalities (online, in-person, hybrid) and will also be asked questions from the Maslach Burnout Inventory. We found that the Maslach Burnout Inventory has been the leading burnout indication measurement. This inventory will give three different scores in three different categories: occupational exhaustion, loss of empathy, and personal accomplishment. With these questions answered, we hypothesized that students taking more online classes will score higher on the Maslach Burnout Inventory in occupational exhaustion and loss of empathy. We also hypothesize that students taking more online classes will show a lower score in the personal accomplishment category.
