Abstract


By applying Glock’s multidimensional concept of religiosity, the study aims to explore the nature of religious commitment among youth by conducting a quantitative study among 254 Muslim students from different departments of Social Sciences faculty and also Science and Engineering faculty at University of Barishal, Bangladesh. The findings of the study show that majority of the respondents who belong to young generation are strong at their ideological and experiential dimension of religiosity. But in ritualistic and consequential dimension their position is not significant at all. They are more believer than a performer. Besides their exposure in the intellectual dimension of religiosity is in moderate level.
