ART & DESIGN HISTORY

Art and Design History is an exciting discipline that encompasses the study of visual artefacts, museum and gallery practices and the production and circulation of meaning around art and design. The Art and Design History combined honours degree provides a systematic understanding of art and design practices and theories with a strong emphasis on critical thinking.

Exclusive partnerships with National Museums Liverpool and Tate Liverpool, plus close collaborations with FACT and Bluecoat Gallery and Display Centre, offer you privileged access to important collections in Liverpool and experts working in the field. There is also the possibility to participate in overseas study tours – in recent years the department has visited Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bilbao, Milan, Paris, Florence, Venice, Berlin and New York.

Another distinctive element of this degree is the curriculum, which covers key developments in art and design history. Furthermore, students in the second and third year will take ‘Professional Practice for Art and Design History’. These courses look at theoretical approaches to museology, as well as more practical considerations such as conservation, exhibition planning and design, curatorial practices and educational activities.

PSYCHOLOGY

Psychology is the exciting scientific study of the mind and behaviour. Psychologists investigate how people perceive the world, structure their thinking, solve problems, interact with other people and much more. Concepts such as perception, cognition, personality and social behaviour are all central building blocks of the psychological theories that are studied at Liverpool Hope as part of a Psychology degree.

Studying this degree allows you to learn about the brain, the mind, and behaviour, but first and foremost psychologists learn about our fellow humans. We help you to develop professional skills and tools to understand others’ needs and provide interventions to enhance mental wellbeing.
