Science is an organized and very important category for progression of all countries in any conceivable fields. The barriers for achieving this organized science are numerous, and our purpose of the study is to investigate the impact of some barriers on the scientific growth of humanities students at Lorestan University. The present study is a descriptive survey, and the population includes all the students of humanities at Lorestan University. The subjects were selected by relative stratified sampling, and the number of samples was obtained as 341 based on Krejcie-Morgan table. Finally, 300 male and female students of humanities sub-disciplines were studied at Lorestan University (2017). Data collection tool was a researcher-made 35-item questionnaire distributed among the subjects. The questionnaire was scored based on a 5-point Likert scale. In the end, data analysis was done by SPSS Software.One of the most important achievements of the study was that the findings suggest that the intra- and extra-individual academic factors (such as career prospect, social and economic status, etc.) have a significant effect on academic growth and scientific growth desire (sig<0.01); particularly, individual factors were more effective on scientific growth.In this study, it was found that all the intra- and extra- individual academic factors have a considerable effect on scientific growth; and it was revealed that individual factors are more effective than other factors. Studies conducted in Iran and other countries have generally investigated scientific growth obstacles from the perspective of professors and university administrators. However, in the present study, we have studied similar factors from the students’ perspective. Ultimately, it was concluded that students are considered as the influential members of the scientific community; reviewing the similar research works, the findings are highly consistent with the results of the previous studies. In fact, students should seriously attempt to minimize the impact of these obstacles; moreover, the society and the authorities should not ignore students, and they should take serious measures to reconstruct the current structures. In this way, science and knowledge will retrieve their value in the country as in the past. However, other factors should not be ignored as they all have a significant effect on scientific growth.
