This research project was aimed to study the facultys beliefs of their self-efficacy regarding the research project supervision of undergraduates and the factors that may be affecting it. This thesis was carried out at the Universidad de Quintana Roo using a mixed case study design. For data collection, questionnaires and interviews were used. The participants were the professors of the Department of Languages and Education. The questionnaires were administered to 14 members of the department and based on the results five professors were chosen to be interviewed. Once having the data, the questionnaires were analysed with the SPSS software and the interviews using dimensions and quotations as evidence. The results show that the professors consider that they have high self-efficacy in the supervision process and there were no meaningful differences in the results of female and male professors. Besides, time was one of the main factors that may be affecting the supervision process followed by the lack of up-dated bibliography.
