In the present study we investigated the Social skills repertoire of Psychology students of the Universidad Nacional de C?rdoba, Argentina. Furthermore, we studied differences between first year students and students who were finalizing their careers (fifth year students). For this purpose, we applied the Social Skills Inventory (IHS-Of the Prette) to 200 psychology students, 100 of the first year and 100 of the fifth year, accidentally selected. We found statistical significant differences in Academic Social Skills (factor 5) favorable to first year. We also observed a great percentage of deficits in the social skills repertoire of the students, as much in the complete scale scores as in the specific skills that the instrument assesses. The percentage of d?ficits of the students of fifth year was superior. This would indicate that students next to finish their career do not have the necessary training in basic social skills. The results are discussed.
