Several major theories of depression have examined the extent to which external factors contribute to depression. The current study was designed to investigate correlates of depression among college students. Four different measurements were used to assess depression, dysfunctional attitudes, loneliness, and stressful life events. Scores of 51 subjects were analyzed. Results indicate a high correlation between depression and attitudes, depression and stressful life events, depression and loneliness, and attitudes and loneliness. No differences in these correlations were found between genders.
