Background: The aim of this research was to determine relationships between religious commitment and health locus of control (HLC) for the group of students of the University of Physical Education in Warsaw, Poland, including gender and study faculty differences. Material/Methods: Full-time students (n = 247) of the Warsaw University of Physical Education were investigated. Religious Commitment Scale (RCS) and Multidimensional Health Locus of Control Scale (MHLC) were used. Results: Few and weak relationships between religious commitment and health locus of control were found; they were stronger within the group of male and physical education students. Cluster analysis by the Ward agglomeration method resulted in distinguishing three internally homogeneous groups. Conclusions: The research presented in this article should be considered a reconnaissance of the problem. The relationships between investigated variables has not been fully recognized and explained, hence this issue requires further research.
