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.

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.

Study with us and you will gain a deeper understanding of the scientific and philosophical underpinnings of psychology. At Liverpool Hope University, high-level, research-oriented teaching is provided by our team of skilled academics. Our staff comprise of active researchers with a wide array of academic interests, ranging from cognitive and brain sciences, developmental, clinical and health, forensic, personality and social processes.

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.
