Examine the roots of football and its rise to modern prominence in our Massive Open Online Course

With the World Cup well under way, we have decided to run our MOOC again.

The World Cup final is on Sunday 15 July but you won’t have to wait long, as our MOOC re-opens on Monday 16 July!

MOOCs are short courses that are delivered online for free enabling everyone, everywhere to enjoy learning throughout their lives. The courses are self-directed, meaning you follow the course materials, complete the readings and assessments, and get help from a large community of fellow learners through online forums.

This MOOC, titled ‘English Football: A Social History’ is a short course looking at the history, sociology and politics of football, including a look at the World Cup and Leicester City Football Club.

The course is designed for anyone interested in football and its background and you can join for free! To find out more information, including how to sign up, please have a look at the course webpage.
