Honour is closely associated with such concepts as dignity, integrity, and morals, and also causes changes in people's attitudes and behaviours as well as in their cultural environment. The present study is intended to investigate attitudes and correlates of female honour in college students. A correlational study was conducted on 2924 undergraduates studying in various faculties at a state university in the Central Black Sea Region of Turkey. They completed a questionnaire, including the Attitude Scale for the Conception of Honour Related to Women (ASCHRW), and a Demographic Information Form. The Mann-Whitney U Test and Kruskal-Wallis H Test were used to test the research hypotheses. Study results revealed that college students' attitudes towards the conception of honour in relation to women varied according to gender, class, socioeconomic level, and faculty. In light of these results, it is possible to conclude that educational practices to raise undergraduates' awareness of gender discrimination and parents' awareness of "honour" can be effective and contributory.
