This paper aims to explore the main sections of emotional intelligence to students. The sample was consisted of 409 students, of whom 207 were women and 202 were male. The participants come from different departments and years of study and their ages ranged from 18 to 29 years. The Wong & Law Emotional Intelligence (WLEIS) self-report questionnaire was provided to the participants which measures the level of emotional intelligence through situations and abilities that were called to choose upon. This is an interesting topic for the scientific community, even though the subject of emotional intelligence has been studied in various contexts, the literature on the study of emotional intelligence with various parameters remains incomplete. This research will assist in answering key questions such as whether the subject or year of study affects the development of emotional intelligence. Initial study is conducted around the levels of emotional development between the two sexes and whether the results are related to the research so far. The differences which occurred between the two sexes are statistically significant from subcategory to subcategory but the levels of emotional intelligence do not differ so much. In the first chapter of this senior thesis, a review is conducted to the theory of emotional intelligence and its multiple definitions. Consequently, the second chapter follows on which includes the theoretical models and places of emotional intelligence measurement as well as the model in which the following questionnaire belongs. In the third chapter, the methodology used for conducting the research is presented, while the fourth chapter is covered by the results of the findings through tables, graphs and annotation. The fifth and final chapters are consisted of the commentary and the discussion that will be followed after the announcement of the results. However, the present research has some limitations regarding the reliability of the questionnaire used and the methodology of the research. The Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (WLEIS) used is a self-report questionnaire, meaning that it does not evaluate based on objectively formulated criteria. The participants, specifically, express their personal estimation of their levels of emotional intelligence which may differ from their objective emotional intelligence.
