Dr. Smitha Dev, Deenaz Kanji, Dr. Sreethi Nair, Smitha Dev*.


This quantitative research demonstrates the necessity of teaching Emotional Intelligence (EI) courses to undergraduate students and to assess the development of major psychosocial skills necessary for their interpersonal success in the university, workplace, and other life domains. The EQ-i test was used as the measurement tool and a quasi-experimental method, one-group, pre-test, post-test group design was adopted to study the impact of the EI course on students’ EQ (Emotional Quotient) by measuring the mean differences of the variables for experimental groups. A paired “t” test was used to find the effectiveness of the Emotional Intelligence course on EQ. Independent “t” test and one-way ANOVA test were used to compare EQ and its dimensions based on gender and age. The findings of this study indicate that students who took the EI course had significant improvement in their overall EQ at the end of the semester. The current research also points to the importance of teaching EI course to students at the undergraduate level in order to develop appropriate psychosocial competencies.

Key words: Emotional Intelligence, mental well-being, adaptability, psychosocial skills, Emotional Quotient, undergraduate students
