Purpose: The aim of the present study was to determine the relationship between communication skills and life satisfaction among students of Islamic Azad University.
Methodology: This was an applied study in terms of its aim and a descriptive correlational in terms of its methodology. The research population included 190000 students studying at Islamic Azad University of Tehran in the academic year 2019-2020. The sample size was estimated to be 384 people selected by multi-stage cluster sampling method. Data were collected by Communication Skills Test-Revise (Queendom, 2004) and Students' Life Satisfaction Scale (Huebner, 1991) and analyzed by Pearson correlation coefficients and stepwise multiple regressions in SPSS ver.19 software.
Findings: The results showed that communication skills and all dimensions including the ability to receive and send message, emotional control, listening skill, insight into the communication process and communication with determination had a positive and significant relationship with life satisfaction in students (P<0.01). Communication skills significantly could predict 33.6% and among the dimensions of communication skills, three dimensions of listening skill, communication with determination and the ability to receive and send message together could predict 60.8% of life satisfaction changes in students (P<0.001), but the dimensions of emotional control and insight into the communication process did not enter the equation due to the lack of a significant increase in the amount of prediction (P>0.05).
Conclusion: According to the results of the present study, communication skills with life satisfaction have a significant relationship and predicted a significant portion of it. Therefore, planning to improve the satisfaction of life in students is essential by increasing their communication skills through workshops.
