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.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE

Language has a profound influence on our way of thinking, seeing and interpreting the world around us. It is a persuasive tool and is used as an instrument of power by governments and large organisations. Our English Language degree examines a wide variety of versions of English and their social, cultural and historical contexts. It has been specially designed with a focus on the role of language in society and to give you an overview of the historical development of English. 

With its emphasis on real language in use, the degree examines the relationship between language and society through the analysis of contemporary materials such as news texts. We pride ourselves on offering a challenging and stimulating degree with a wide range of innovative teaching and assessment methods.

You will be taught by academics who are actively engaged in research and have published in their specialist fields. You will also benefit from the University’s Special Collections in the library, home to over 75,000 printed materials and complemented by an environmentally controlled vault that houses rare books and manuscripts from as early as the 14th Century. With a strong commitment to small-group teaching and the personal development of all of our students, we strive to support you in the pursuit of academic excellence.
