Crime and how to deal with it are amongst the most significant and contentious issues of our time, so it is vital that we understand this subject. Criminology is the study of crime, its causes and effects, and what we do about it. At Liverpool Hope University, you will study how crime is defined and who defines it, why some people commit offences, and what happens to those who commit crimes if they are caught.
Criminology also studies the impact of the various agencies and organisations that deal with crime: the police, the courts, the probation and prison services, as well as the role of the Ministry of Justice and the Home Office. Studying Criminology enables you to focus on questions such as ‘is criminal behaviour learned or inherited?’ and ‘why are some actions defined as criminal and not others?’; ‘what is the purpose of punishment and to what extent does it deter criminal behaviour?’
Criminology is a well-established degree at Liverpool Hope and is taught by staff with considerable experience at national and international level. Several key criminological textbooks are written by members of the School. The Criminology team is enthusiastic and dedicated and will help you to get the most out of your degree. Criminology is heavily focused on justice - how it is delivered, to whom, by whom and whether or not it is effective. This reflects Liverpool Hope’s commitment to social justice both nationally and internationally.For more details and information about this course visit:
Nutrition is becoming a vital discipline as the awareness of the importance of healthy eating grows. Nutritionists have a key role in helping us understand how diet helps maintain health and prevents disease. Nutritionists work in a diverse and wide range of professional roles providing and implementing evidence-based nutritional guidelines, public health nutrition strategies, and developing the safe, sustainable, and healthy foods of the future.
Our Nutrition degree is focused on developing the practical, professional and research skills needed to develop a successful career as a professional nutritionist in various roles across the public health and commercial food sectors (as well as preparation for further study or pursuing a professional career in dietetics).
The curriculum includes a focus on nutritional science; the food supply chain; the social and behavioral sciences; health and wellbeing; and the importance of professional conduct. You will be taught in our new Health Sciences building, which features specialist laboratories and equipment dedicated to the study of food, nutrition and health.
You will learn from a highly committed team of research-active UK registered nutritionists (supported with additional expertise in food science, the biological sciences, and public health). Our staff have a wide range of practical experience and are enthusiastic about both the academic subject and the quality of your student experience.For more details and information about this course visit:
