This descriptive correlational research investigated the challenges faced by MCJE students of Wesleyan University Philippines in conducting research. A total of 74 respondents were chosen purposively. The study found out that the majority of the MCJE students are male, married with a monthly income of almost Php 30,000, are Philippine National Police (PNP) Officers and have 0 to 2 seminars attended and 1 research output. They are motivated to conduct research, however, the challenges are in complex research, language barriers, and balancing academic and work commitments. MCJEs with fewer research outputs face higher challenges, highlighting the need to support and encourage research productivity in overcoming academic obstacles.
