This study investigates whether there is any differentiation in individual and social responsibility of undergraduates according to their religiosity. Concept “responsibility” is seen as built on two different paradigms. First, individual responsibility including religious responsibility, second institutional social responsibility built on approach of developing projects to attract attention firstly to globalized risks and decrease effect of these risks to minimum. Essence of individual responsibility is formed by the fact that “human-human”, “human-nature”, and “creator-human” relations take place in certain harmony. Any disorder appearing within this framework may affect negatively all fields it includes and cause a chaos. One of essential elements strengthening individual responsibility is approach of religious responsibility. Within religious responsibility, healthy process of all elements related to human in individual and social meaning is linked to acts of a person of intellect and will. Institutional social responsibility appearing after globalized risk factor is a matter that can be explained with many intertangled concept series and includes individual and social elements. With globalisation, ‘risk’ factors have balanced each other in individual and social meaning and thus this matter has become important. In this context, the study is a quantitative one based on undergraduates at five different faculties of Gumushane University. The quantitative study conducted in Gumushane University undergraduates sample is based on measuring effect of religiosity and some socio-demographic variables on individual and social responsibility. In the study, as a result, it has been found that “religiosity” increases level of individual and social responsibility.
