CONTEMPORARY FASHION DESIGN

Contemporary Fashion is a dynamic practice-based course that explores a breadth of current themes and issues from inclusivity to adaptable fashion. Centred around the exciting possibilities of adorning the body and exploring materials, you will learn about the fundamentals of designing, making and understanding the role that fashion plays in wider society. The course will encourage individuality, collaborative working and support diverse career trajectories.

During your studies you will be taught by established practitioners and have access to a vast range of equipment, workshops and studios. You will be immersed in a professional environment that enables rich interdisciplinary approaches at undergraduate level. This includes working with live briefs and competitions, as well as engaging with established national and international contacts.

As a Combined Honours Degree, this programme offers an exciting opportunity to combine your fashion practice with other subjects, which will influence your individual approach to fashion and can be tailored to individual interests.

SOCIAL POLICY

Social Policy explores the ways in which welfare provision is delivered in society, exploring who is eligible for support and who provides it. Our Social Policy degree is multidisciplinary in its approach and draws on ideas from sociology, economics, politics and geography. It explores issues such as inequality, ill health and wellbeing, child welfare, employment and unemployment, educational opportunities, disability, homelessness, family policies, mental health, globalisation, crime and immigration.

Studying Social Policy at Liverpool Hope University allows you to explore the answers to questions such as; should the state be the main provider of welfare and what roles should the private profit making or voluntary sectors have? How should scarce resources be allocated in society? How can we understand different approaches to welfare delivery across different historical periods in British society? Why do women and minority ethnic groups experience greater levels of disadvantage? How have welfare systems developed in different countries?

The degree draws on an experienced team of lecturers who are published in the social sciences and are experts in social policy. The School is also a member of the national network of Social Policy course providers and benefits from engagement with national subject debates. There are fieldtrips to enhance your learning, and we also have annual research days where leading academics, civil servants and politicians come to talk about various social problems and social issues.
