Abstract: The main purpose of my dissertation was to find out whether secularization is taking place among Maltese University students, who might reflect the younger generations. This study was focused on some University students aged between eighteen and twenty-two as to have a clear view of whether this generation follows its religious teachings. I gathered the data needed through qualitative methods, except for a short questionnaire which was used to have some personal information about gender and secondary school attended. The results mainly suggested that with regards to the respondents' past secondary school education, there was no significant difference in religious beliefs, values and participation between those who attended Church schools and those who didn't. However there was evidence of small differences in some issues tackled when it came to the analysis of between gender. But overall, the whole analysis of the study suggests that there is in fact significant evidence that Maltese University students are in fact more secular.
