In this single case study, university students’ burnout was examined with respect to the curricular activities in an institution. The participants consisted of A2 level English students (N=390) at an English preparatory school of a state university. The participants were given a survey consisting of the Turkish version of the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Scale and open-ended questions. The data were analyzed and the results were reported through descriptive and inferential statistics and content analysis. In the study, implications were drawn for curriculum developers and educators.
