This study focuses on the provision of baseline data for the intervention programs of building proper sexual attitudes through understanding of the differences between spiritual wellbeing and sexual attitudes of healthcare department students from Christian university and non-Christian university. The survey was carried with questionnaire to the junior and senior students from Christian university and non-Christian university located in the C and D province during period between 24th of March, 2014 and 11th of April, 2014. The results are as follows. Students from Christian university show higher spiritual wellbeing, which is statistically significant (t=5.920, p=0.001). Also, in views of sexual attitude, Christian university students have more affirmative awareness. Except ambivalent sexual values from questionnaire subcategories, they showed statistically significant differences in all other subcategories of sexual opinion, sexual behavior, virginity, and pornographic media. When we examine the correlation of subcategory between spiritual wellbeing and sexual attitude, religious wellness is found to be correlated with existential wellness, sexual opinion, sexual behavior, virginity, ambivalent sexual values, and pornographic media. For the case of existential wellness, it is correlated with religious wellness, sexual opinion, virginity, and pornographic media. Therefore, in the development of intervention program to reduce sex-related problematic behavior, it is required to include contents of spiritual wellbeing improvement for university students to have appropriate sexual attitude.
