For this purpose, 351 students of Islamic Azad University, Shabestar branch were selected from different faculties and different majors using the stratified clustering method. In order to measure the variables, psychological well-being questionnaire of Ryff (RSPWB-SF: Ryff, 1989) and values in action inventory of strengths (VIA- IS: Peterson & Seligman, 2004) questionnaire were used. The methodology of this study is causal-comparative and for data analysis, multivariate analysis of variance was used. After the test assumptions, results indicated that the elements of psychological well-being and character strengths are significantly different in the students based on their majors (P=0.001). Regarding the obtained results, it seems that the nature of the major affects psychological well-being as well as character strengths of the students. Moreover, as positive attributes of the character affect selecting educational majors, they are influenced by the majors as well.
