Abstract

Academic stress arises due to pressure, which gives rise to subjective perceptions of an academic condition. Students' high academic stress hurts physical and mental health, such as anxiety, panic, and depression, which can hinder decision-making and academic performance when undergoing studies. This research aims to find out the relationship between religiosity and academic stress. This type of research is quantitative, with simple random sampling as the sample selection technique. The population of this study was 358 final students of the Psychology Study Program at Muhammadiyah University of Sidoarjo. A sample of 234 subjects was determined according to the tables of Isaac and Michael with an error rate of 1%. This study uses two psychological scales, the CSR (Center of Religiosity Scale), to measure religiosity and the ESSA (Educational Stress Scale for Adolescents) to measure academic stress. Both scales are Likert scales. The data analysis technique uses the Product Moment Pearson Correlation test with the help of the SPSS V.21 program. The results showed that the value of r = 0.-294 with a significance value of 0.000 (P <0.05), meaning that Ho was accepted because of a correlation between religiosity and academic stress. The implications of this study through the calculation of R square are that the religiosity factor contributes to overcoming academic stress by 8.6% in final students of the psychology study program at Muhammadiyah University of Sidoarjo.
