Sociology of Religion Dissertation Topics

Sociology of religion encompasses a vast range of issues related to the impact that different elements create on religion and the impact that religion creates on various social issues. For instance, it includes the study of various beliefs, values and structures of religions in society, along with the impact that social elements, such as, social interaction, media and politics impose on religion. Similarly, this field of sociology covers contemporary issues, such as, the impact of social issues like gender, inequality and stereotyping on religion. If the area of sociology of religion interests you and you decide to write about it in your sociology dissertation, the following topics may prove useful to you:

• Comparison of cross-religious beliefs and values in the UK.
• How have print and electronic media in the UK created perceptions about different religions?
• Analysing the common religious grounds for developing inter-faith harmony in the UK.
• How has social interaction between people from different religious backgrounds led to religious diffusion?
• Analysing the link between gender and sexual issues with relevance to different religions.
• Is there any link between religion and social change?
• A critical analysis of religious organisations in the UK and their impact on social structure.
• Identifying the link between religion and political behaviour in the UK.
• Identifying the impact of religion on marriages in the UK.
• Exploring the relationship between religion and education as a social institution.
• Can Goffman’s ‘ritualised interactions’ and his interaction of everyday life be used for the analysis of contemporary religious life?
• How, and in what ways are religious values and religious norms binding for members of UK society today?
• Should the public sphere be separate from the private sphere, when the private sphere for some is religious?
