Historically, people have sought to make sense of the universe and their own lives, in a way that is independent of time and space in the course of their lives. In this process of finding a meaning, religion has become one of the basic concepts. Thus, the phenomenon of religion has affected people's thoughts, lives, economic relations and social structures. In this context, the main purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the happiness levels and religiosity of people in their daily lives. For this purpose, Oxford Happiness Scale and Münchner Motivational Religiosity Inventory have been applied to 393 students, studying at Tokat Gaziosmanpa?a University in order to collect data. The research data were analyzed by Factor Analysis, Independent TwoSample T-Test, One-Way Analysis of Variance and Regression Analysis. As a result of the research, a positive interaction was found between the religiosity levels of happiness levels of individuals. Accordingly, it was observed that one unit increase in the level of religiosity of individuals leads to approximately 32% increase in their happiness levels.
