SOC 2330 80 – SOCIOLOGY OF RELIGION
William Paterson University Fall 2020
Term Paper – Instructions
This assignment is not a long paper, but it is not one that can be put together at the last
minute. Begin your paper right away!
The term paper will consist of an essay about seven-twelve pages long based on one
topic related to the Class.
I expect the paper to be 7-12 double-spaced pages in length (1” margins and size 12
fonts) including a short introduction, the literature review section.
You will examine a particular social or cultural issue of your choice. Whatever topic you
choose, make sure that your project is manageable, so that it can be carried out in a
relatively short period of time. Your paper should focus on three or four important
“points” that show how underlying cultural values or themes are expressed in the group,
site, or issue you are exploring.
The paper should include the following sections:
• An Introduction that lays out where the paper is going and what the main points will
be • An explanation of the problem, why the topic was selected.
• A review of existing sources on the problem, including the review of 1-5 scholarly
sources (available on WPU Library sociological databases). In addition, you should
make two explicit connections to something from the class–from movies, lectures,
or readings – somewhere within the paper.
• Depending on your topic, you may include data and maps in order to support and
develop your argument (you could see: www.socialexplorer.com and also
• Three to four sections, each separated by a heading, that elucidate your main points-
-how cultural values or themes are expressed in this site. Each section should include
specific material from your observations and thoughts, and sum up the material to make
a point. Do not make general statements without backing them up with specific data.
• A conclusion that ties the various points or themes together ************
Please, note: The term paper MUST have proper citation and reference list
according to ASA (American Sociological Association) style. Please, visit the
WPU’s Library website dealing with ASA (American Sociological Association) style
guide. Failure to cite properly will result in a failing
grade. Please, note: if you click on the following link

containing the basic instructions.
Like every other assignment in this Class, the paper should be well-written,
grammatically correct, without misspellings or other writing errors. The paper must, of
course, be typed and stapled. If you have difficulties with writing, please make an
appointment to see the excellent tutors at the Writing Center. Anyway, I will be happy to
go over rough drafts if they are given to me at least ten days before the paper is due.
Please, note: do not hesitate to write me, I will be glad to give you a hand!
Students will have to submit their term paper through SafeAssign (you will find a
specific link in the folder named “Term Paper Submission”).
SafeAssign will process your assignment by generating an Originality Report that I

Important: please, note that it is NOT allowed to submit the same term paper (or a
