GEOGRAPHY

Geography is about exploring, encountering and engaging with the world around us. It is a dynamic and exciting subject to study. It looks at how the physical world works; how people interact both with each other and with the physical world; how landscapes (both physical and human) evolve; and the ways in which the environment needs to be conserved and managed. Geography covers many different perspectives and brings them together to create a distinctive way of understanding the world. Whether your interests are more towards physical, environmental or human geography, our degree offers you the chance to develop an integrated, enriched understanding of what is taking place on our planet.

Studying Geography means you will look at a wide range of different topics and learn a broad range of skills. For this reason, a Geography degree is one of the most valued subjects among potential employers.

An enthusiastic and friendly team of geographers and environmentalists with wide research interests teach Geography at Hope. You will find that Liverpool is a great place to study Geography, being an excellent case study of economic, environmental and social regeneration, and having surroundings that include stunning upland and coastal landscapes.

POLITICS

Whether at a local, regional or national level, politics and political decisions affect all citizens and are instrumental in shaping the future of the nation. At Liverpool Hope, we address 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 practised in the world today.

Politics is a very dynamic and ever-changing subject. We try to engage with politics and political issues as they evolve and change over time, and we actively encourage debate and discussion amongst our students, encouraging 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. You will be taught by staff who are experts in their field, and will help you to develop the skills you need to engage critically and knowledgeably with the world and equip you with transferable skills to take into the world of work.

The study of politics at Liverpool Hope does not just take place in the classroom and the library. We also organise fieldtrips to relevant local, regional and national institutions, as well as bring in guest speakers and practitioners from outside. Recent visits have included a trip to the UK Parliament, Brussels and Berlin, and visits from local politicians and other figures.
