A evaluative research study was done to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases among the under graduate students in selected arts and science college at Bangalore.objectives were to assess the existing level of knowledge regarding the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases among the under graduate students in selected arts and science college at Bangalore by,to determine the effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases by comparing pretest and posttest knowledge scores of under graduate students in selected arts and Science College at Bangalore,to find out the association between the pretest knowledge level of under graduate Students regarding the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases with their selected demographic variables. Conceptual frame work used was “Kings Theory of Goal Attainment” proposed by Imogene King in the year 1989. evaluvative research approach was selected with pre experimental one group pretest post test design. Non-Probability convenience sampling will be used to select the (50) under graduate students in selected arts college at Bangalore.a pre-test was administered by the means of a structured knowledge questionnaire.

The demographic variables analyzed in the study were gender, source of information, type of family. There is no significant association between gender and pret-test knowledge level of the under graduate students (? 2= 1.30, P>0.05). There is no significant association between the pret-test knowledge score and sources of information (?2=0.53, P >0.05). There exist significant association between pre-test level of knowledge and type of family (? 2= 7.72, P<0.05).
