Abstract

This study examined the effect of a new physical education (PE) program that aimed at improving social skills for new university students. Participants were randomly divided into two control groups (35 female, mean ±.853 years of age; 29 female, mean 18.76 ±.786) and one experimental group (34 female, mean 18.85 ±.89). We implemented a new physical education (PE) program in the experimental group, while the control groups received traditional lessons. Social skills (companionship, self-control, self-disclosure, and adaptation) were examined before and after the study term. We also analyzed the differences between the three groups after the first term. According to the results of two-factor analysis of variance indicated significant interaction effects between the experimental and control groups.
