The purpose of this study is to compare the critical thinking skills among the students of accounting and software in the female technical and vocational university in the city of Borojerd. This study is a descriptive-comparative research. The statistical population of this study includes the female students of accounting and software in the technical and vocational university in the city of Borojerd. A sample of 60 students was selected from this population randomly in the 2014. The sample consists of 30 students of accounting and 30 software students. In order to collect the research data, the second form of California Critical Thinking Skills Questionnaire was used. The research data were analyzed in the SPSS16 through analysis of variance (ANOVA). The average and standard deviation of the research data is 9.15 ± 3.09. Although the scores of accounting students were better than the scores of software students, but no significant difference was not observed between them. The difference between the two groups of respondents was significant in terms of inductive reasoning (p = 0.014). Another part of our findings revealed that the scores of critical thinking skills among the accounting and software students are similar to the scores of critical thinking skills of students in other countries. Our findings revealed that the scores of critical thinking skills of accounting and software students are lower than the scores of those in other countries. These findings point to the fact that the educational plans of this university need some reviews and modifications.
