The purpose of the present study is to determine if psychological capital (PsyCap) and spirituality can predict the subjective well-being (SWB) of college students. There is evidence that PsyCap have a positive impact on well-being at work settings (Hsieh, 2010). Aside from PsyCap, spirituality also helps individuals to reinvent the self as a result to improve their well-being (Unterrainer & Ladenhauf, 2005). However, these variables were not tested together in the same model. The present study will test these variables to predict SWB. The participants will include 320 college students in Taiwan. The inventories used are the Psychological Capital Questionnaire (PCQ), Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS), and Daily Spiritual Experience Scale (DSES). When spirituality, factors of psychological capital, and subjective well-being were intercorrelated, the coefficients were all significant. The multiple regression was used to test whether spirituality and the factors of psychological capital can predict subjective well-being. It was found that spirituality, resilience, and optimism significantly predicted subjective well-being.
