The purpose of this study was to clarify whether depression levels may be predicted by motivation among college students based on gender. Is there a difference in depression levels based on gender? Are there differences based on depression/motivation variables? The participants of this research consisted of (N=85) undergraduate college students. The Beck Depression inventory was administered to measure the degree of depression and a T-test was used to evaluate the distinction between the depression/motivation variables and gender. The results of this study showed that females seem to have a higher level of depression but also have a higher level of motivation.
