Student represents the society’s investment for future. Academic stress is one of the important stresses among adolescents and is a cause for great concern for the educationists worldwide. Stress is associated with physical, psychological and behavioural experiences of life. To delineate socio-economic and personal factors, self-prepared interview schedule was used. The Beck Depression Inventory-II (Beck, Steer & Brown, 1996) was used to measure the level of depression among post graduate students. Scale of academic stress (Bisht, 1995) was used to measure the level of academic stress among post graduate students. The present study was conducted purposively in CCS HAU, Hisar. 20 male and 20 female post graduate students were selected as a sample for the present study. So the total sample comprises of 40 post graduate students. The present investigation has come out with positive and significant correlation between academic stress and depression of post graduate students. Female students were having high academic stress as compared to male students but in case of depression it was found that males were having high level of depression as compared to female students.
