Abstract

This research aims at identifying the relationships between academic identity and both academic passion and psychological flourishing and exploring the mediating role of academic passion between academic identity and psychological flourishing. Four hundred and twelve female university students at the Faculty of Islamic Girls, Assuit Al-Azhar University, Egypt. participated in the research (age mean= 20.24, SD= 1.13). The academic identity scale (by the researcher), the academic passion scale (by Vallerand et al.,2003) and the psychological flourishing scale (by Dieber et al.,2010) were applied to the participants. Data were analyzed by Pearsons correlation coefficients and path analysis. Results revealed a statistically significant positive correlation between academic identity and both academic passion and psychological flourishing. Besides, results demonstrated the mediating role of academic passion between academic identity and psychological flourishing. These results can be utilized in developing psychological flourishing among university students and providing those in charge of educational planning and policies with some practical results that are useful in developing academic identity and passion through training and educational programs and strategies.
