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. You will be taught in our excellent research facilities, including labs for experiments in cognition and perception, a colour vision lab, an Eye tracker lab, an EEG lab, an fNIRS lab, observational and transcription labs.

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. This is all valuable knowledge that can be used for a better and fairer society.

RELIGIOUS STUDIES

Religious Studies at Liverpool Hope explores the practice and significance of religion in contemporary society through the study of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Indic traditions such as Buddhism and Hinduism. A balance between the study of religious texts and lived religion in the contemporary world is maintained throughout the degree. Religious Studies pays close attention to what supporters to these religions believe, and explores the very real differences that exist between various groups within each faith.

Throughout your studies, you will analyse and contextualise the theology behind key religions to appreciate their history and their relevance to the social and political landscape. All of our teaching is research-informed and you will be taught by highly-qualified academics, all of whom have a PhD in the area, who are both active and published researchers and committed teachers. We work hard to provide top-quality educational opportunities for all our students, and the Department has recently invested heavily in learning resources; combined library holdings in Theology and Religion are now in excess of 100,000 volumes.

Above all, the Religious Studies degree treats religions as lived faiths by looking at the way that they are followed in Britain and across the globe today. You acquire skills in the different methods of studying religion. The degree looks at questions of faith and life and at the same time is intellectually challenging. By drawing out the complex issues that surround religious belief and expression, the degree equips you to engage with the pressing questions of our time and to play your part in promoting religious and social harmony.
