Abstract

This study will test the benefits of integrating emotional intelligence (EI) into a career and life planning seminar (UNIV 224) for upper-level undergraduates. The study has an “as usual” group (standard UNIV 224 course), an intervention group (UNIV 224 with EI), and a “control group” (students not enrolled in either course). The students’ emotional and social competencies will be measured at the beginning and end of the semester. I hypothesize that students enrolled in either UNIV 224 class will increase in grit compared to controls. Further, I hypothesize that group status will moderate the effect between baseline EI and later grit where the relationship is stronger for those in either UNIV class.

Integrating Emotional Intelligence Training into a Career and Life Planning Seminar for Students Transitioning Out of College

This study will test the benefits of integrating emotional intelligence (EI) into a career and life planning seminar (UNIV 224) for upper-level undergraduates.

I hypothesize that students enrolled in either UNIV 224 class will increase in grit compared to controls.
