Course code 74306

  Course is not currently open for enrolment

This course investigates how we attempt to build security and attachment in our world. Investigating the regulation of behaviour through governance and culture, the course will demonstrate the relevance of a sociological approach to understanding how our social systems work, and sometimes fail. The course uses current, relevant materials to develop a strong set of analytical skills needed for strategy, policy and advocacy development. Making Social Worlds is ideal for students who have previously studied the social sciences and want to consolidate their understanding of sociology.
