- Social appearance anxiety, Students, Faculty of sport sciences, Faculty of education.
This study was carried out to examine the social appearance anxiety of the faculty of sports sciences and faculty of education in terms of some variables. In this context, the social appearance anxiety scale was applied to the students of the sports sciences who received sports education and the students of the education faculty who did not receive sports education. Independent samples t-test, one-way ANOVA, and LSD tests were used to analyze the data. As a result of the analysis, the social appearance anxiety scale score was found 34.43 in women and 35.11 in men. On the other hand, the social appearance anxiety scale score was found to be 32.89 in students of faculty of sport sciences and 36.68 in students of faculty of education. There was no significant difference in social appearance anxiety scale scores in terms of gender variable (p>0.05). A significant difference was observed in the social appearance anxiety scale scores in terms of sport education status variable (p<0.001). The social appearance anxiety scores of the students who were satisfied with their own body weight and height were found lower than those who were not satisfied, which was found statistically significant (p<0.001). The results of this research showed that the social appearance anxiety of students of the faculty of sport sciences who receive sports education is lower than those of the faculty of education students who do not receive sports education.
