The major objective of the study was to find out the effects of culture and environment of the institutes on the emotional development of post graduate student teachers studying in religious institutes and public universities. The data was collected from the departments (Islamic Studies and Arabic) working under the supervision of University of the Punjab Lahore and from three traditional religious institutes of different Islamic sects. The convenient sampling technique was used to gather the information of 250 students (94 female and 156 male).An emotional intelligence scale was developed and validated to collect the data. There were 22 situations on an emotional intelligence scale and every situation has four possible reactions. The data was analyzed with M (Mean), SD, t-test and one way ANOVA. No significant difference was found in males and females. Also there was no significant difference found in various institutes. Over all, the mean score showed that all student teachers were not emotionally stable and were having least tolerance in their views. It is recommended to develop some activities to enhance their emotional stability both for public university and religious institute student teachers.
