Abstract: 

Depression is one of the most common neurologic disorders that are related to the life styles and/or genetic differences in the brain functions. Although many cases of depression have other etiologies such as Parkinson disease. There are many reports indicating the presence of depression (with different severities) in the universities students’ population. The purpose of this research is examining the level of depression in two statistical population of students in science faculty and medical faculty of mashhad universities in 1385 and finding out its severities. So, we have used "Beck Depressive Inventory" (BDI) which is the most common scale in examining the depression. The variables are: age, Sex, Field of study, the name of faculty and living location (dormitory or personal house). The analysis of the results indicated a significant difference between the men and women and abovementioned faculties (P<0.05). The students were divided into four groups according to severity of depression, and a noticeable group of them were in mild form of depression. Also, significant difference was seen in the presence of depression among the students of Science faculty in comparison with medical students that means more incidence of depression in science faculty students.
