The aim of this study was to compare the aggression scores of Sports Sciences Faculty and Education Faculty students and also to examine the effects of some demographic variables on aggression. Two hundred Sports Sciences Faculty students (who engage in sporting activities four days a week for two hours) and 200 Education Faculty students (who do not engage in sports) participated in the study. The Aggressiveness Inventory was used to determine the aggression scores which has three subdimensions, such as disruptive aggression (DA), assertiveness (AS) and passive aggression (PA). General Aggression Scores (GAS) was examined. DA, PA and GAS scores were not found to be significantly different between two faculties (p>0.05); only the AS scores of Physical Education students were higher than the scores of Education Faculty students (p<0.05). In conclusion, participation in sports increases assertiveness but the level of aggression does not change because of gender. Assertiveness levels increased as the educational class study increased. Smoking and drinking increased the levels of DA and GA.
