Abstract

This paper aims to verify the use of the communication skills from university students and professional importance they given them; and examine whether there are differences between students of support degrees and students of other degrees. It was attended by 418 students of various degrees and Master’s degrees from the University of La Laguna. In the study, a frequency analysis was employed to determine the level of use of communication skills and importance they given them; and a T test for independent samples in order to observe the differences between two groups. The information was collected by questionnaire for professional communication skills HABICOM. The results show that college students use appropriate communication skills and give importance to them in their careers, although students of support degrees stand out from those of other degrees; however results are to be taken with caution due to the small effect size. We consider it’s necessary to continue training in these skills to college students because they are fundamental for their professional performance.
