Abstract

The objective of the research was to relate the level of happiness and academic achievement of graduate students at the National Pedagogical University in 2019, with the participation of students of both sexes between the ages of 18 and 35. It is a quantitative, non-experimental and cross-relational investigation. The Alarcon scale was used to describe Happiness, which consisted of 27 items, including four factors. To achieve academic achievement, the academic trajectory of each student has been worked on. The information was processed using the SPSS statistical package, version 23, to calculate the percentage of the level of happiness and the Pearson correlation. The results of three happiness factors show that the population is at a low level: a positive life-sense factor of 50 %, a life-satisfactory factor of 60 % and a joy-of-life factor of 55 %. At the medium level, the Personal Achievement factor is 45%. As far as the Pearson Correlation is concerned, a high correlation is detected between the happiness variable and the academic performance (r = 0.520 and p <0.001). It is concluded that contextualization, sphere of origin, socio-economic level, their perception of themselves and their emotional state must be considered
