An analytic cross-sectional study, the population included male and female students studying at Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University, Tehran, during the educational year 2012-2011. 326 students (male=165, female=161) were selected through random and multistep cluster sampling. Sherer et al’s Self-Efficacy questionnaire (SGSES) was used to measure participants’ self-efficacy. Oxford Happiness questionnaire (OHS) was also used to measure participants’ happiness. The findings showed a positive and significant relationship between happiness and the subscales and self-efficacy. Happiness and its subscales also significantly predicted self-efficacy.
