The Social Sciences Portal
Cold war

Welcome to the Social Sciences Portal! This dashboard provides you with a division of Wikiversity that is similar to a "school" at a brick-and-mortar university. Here you will find links to various divisions, schools, research projects, learning resources, and so much more.

The Social Sciences were created for the study of social groups and, more generally, human society. This has become an interesting and fascinating endeavour for programs such as Wikiversity that do not cater to just one social group but for a global audience. As a result, the education efforts that we pursue in Wikiversity's Social Sciences Portal should be both specific and universal. For instructors it is recommended that a broad range of material is presented to students such that they are able to pursue academic rigour in a variety of subject areas and not from a culturally-specific point of view. Rather, students should be given options in selecting multiple points of perspective on the various issues that affect the study of global society. Consequently, students will be encouraged to engage in learning multiple perspectives about the same problem-set, as one finds that the approach to subject-matter on one side of the planet is not always the same as it is on the other. Let us hope that both students and teachers will engage in this worthwhile endeavour to explore the various aspects of the global social landscape as we seek to increase our understanding of ourselves and of one another.

Featured Resource
Theory and Practice of Media Literacy

A resource for scholars and others interested in media literacy. This document was originally developed by graduate students enrolled in BTMM 589, "Theory and Practice of Media Literacy Education" which was taught by Professor Renee Hobbs in the Fall of 2006 at Temple University's School of Communication and Theater. Students enrolled in the course in the Fall of 2007 continue to develop, modify and expand the site, contributing their own understanding of the course readings and critical analysis.
