EARLY CHILDHOOD

The early experience of children in today’s society is crucial to their future life experience. Early Childhood is receiving significant attention due to its importance for securing lifelong learning and development. The Early Childhood degree at Liverpool Hope allows you to study early holistic development from a local, national and international perspective.

The widening gap nationally and internationally between advantaged and disadvantaged children clearly emphasises the implications of supporting children and their families in their early years. For Single Honours students there is a compulsory placement as part of your degree. The placement will enable you to enhance your understanding of key themes and demonstrate your abilities to work in a professional context. For Combined Honours students the placement is optional.

The degree is taught by academics from a wide variety of backgrounds, including Sociology, Education, Health and Psychology. The teaching team are all actively involved in research and have published in their specialist fields. They are all members of the thriving Liverpool Hope Childhood Research Forum and contribute to a range of research conferences both nationally and internationally. This experience provides an informed and supportive learning environment for the student characterised by depth and challenge.

POLITICS

Politics is a subject that encompasses a range of issues central to an understanding of contemporary society. Whether at a local, regional or national level, political decisions affect all citizens and are instrumental in shaping the future of the nation. At Liverpool Hope, we address an array of topics that allow us to explore the theory and practical application of politics. We look at local issues in Liverpool, the politics of the UK and the EU and consider broader theoretical concepts such as the historical evolution of democracy and how it is implemented in the world today.

Politics is a very dynamic and ever-changing subject. We actively encourage debate and discussion amongst our students, and aim to encourage a stronger awareness and appreciation of different points of view. The study of politics at Liverpool Hope does not just take place in the classroom and the library. We organise field trips to regional and national institutions and we support you to get involved with community engagement projects. We organise field trips to regional and national institutions and try to engage with politics as it evolves with elections, referendum and the processes of change.

Politics addresses the responsibilities of individuals and collective groups in society. It considers issues of citizenship, community and individualism, and examines how society can evolve to enhance individual sovereignty. You will be taught by staff who are experts in their field, and will help you to develop the skills you need to have a long and successful career in politics.
