Abstract

Current study was conducted to evaluate the role of emotional competence and social competence along with gender differences in quality of life among young students (age range=18-25 years). Results from various research studies suggest an increase in emotional and social problems among young adults in recent years. This consequently leads to poor quality of life and an overall low well-being. Therefore, the relationship between social-emotional competence and quality of life was studied along with gender differences in quality of life. A sample of N=350 university students was recruited through random sampling and participants were assessed using cross-sectional survey design. Analysis revealed that emotional and social competence significantly predicted and were positively associated with quality of life. Moreover, there exist non-significant gender differences in quality of life among young adults. Trainings must be arranged to spread awareness regarding importance of emotional and social health and consequent repercussions in the form of overall low well-being among young generation.
