Abstract

The purpose of the current study was to investigate whether listening to music on a daily basis has an effect on scores of depression and anxiety in college students. This study also looked at whether music preferences and gender had a correlation to levels of depression and anxiety. 120 college students between the ages of 18-46 from a randomised convenience sample took part in the present research study. Several correlation tests were run to examine the strength of relationship between the desired variables. Although pop music was the most popular, the results found no significance in any music preference. Similarly, there were no significant results which showed any gender differences in the relevant variables. However, there was significant evidence to show that hours spent per day increases levels of depression and anxiety in participants.
