University rank #501 (WUR) Online
The Making Social Worlds programme offered by The Open University UK demonstrates how sociological approaches can be applied to make sense of these processes – investigating how they work and how they sometimes fail. Through topics such as medicine, the family, money and reality television, you will explore how social experience is shaped by the material world, and made meaningful through culture.

About

In order to survive, human beings live in social worlds which create security, foster stable attachment between individuals and things, and regulate behaviour.

The Making Social Worlds programme offered by The Open University UK is ideal if you have previously studied the social sciences and want to consolidate your understanding of sociology.
