Abstract

Author(s): Fuad BAK?O?LU, Rukiye ?AH?N

Intercultural tolerance is important because in the case of difference, it presents a peaceful life opportunity instead of conflict. Handling it as a moral value makes it a necessity. In this study, the relationship between the university students’ intercultural tolerance levels and their moral maturity levels was investigated. Also, whether their intercultural tolerance levels and moral maturity levels varied by sex or not was investigated. The sample of the study was composed of 1153 students of a state university in Middle Black Sea Region. In this study, “Intercultural Tolerance Scale” adapted into Turkish by the researcher and “Moral Maturity Scale” adapted for the university sample by Kaya and Ayd?n (2011) were used as data collection tools. In the data analysis process, Pearson Correlation Analysis and t-test were performed. As a result of the study, a positive significant relationship was determined between the university students’ intercultural tolerance levels and their moral maturity levels. University students’ intercultural tolerance levels didn’t vary by sex. University students’ moral maturity levels varied significantly by sex.
