Explore performance in the heart of the city of Liverpool. Learn about the origins of drama and develop your skills in making new work.
Liverpool Hope’s creative community is internationally renowned and world-leading in drama research and practice. You will develop your acting skills, your ability to facilitate drama sessions, as well as improving your critical writing skills. We make use of the many theatre venues in Liverpool, from the traditional Everyman/Playhouse to the experimental Tate Liverpool as well as our own Capstone Theatre, several well-equipped studio theatre spaces dedicated for student use, and our very own Hope Theatre Company – of which you could play a part.
Throughout your time at Liverpool Hope, you will be asked to explore drama in relation to your own skills and interests, helping you to understand the critical place of drama in the 21st-century. Our motto is to ‘educate in the round’, meaning you will develop transferrable social skills to take to future employers and make a difference in the workplace.
Contemporary society is becoming ever more complex and the need to understand how it works is increasingly important. Sociology is the study of how society is organised, how this influences the attitudes and behaviour of individuals and the impact this has on social relationships, both within and between societies. Accordingly, sociology is now commonly regarded as an essential discipline for understanding the development of all modern societies. The Sociology degree at Liverpool Hope will help you to think critically and constructively about the key questions relating to modern society.
Our sociology degree is based around a core that provides inputs from social theory and from the comparison of different forms of society. The degree will help you to examine ‘common-sense’ assumptions about the world by exploring the issues that confront society, both nationally and globally, and by studying the theories and methods that help to explain and understand these issues. It also examines and evaluates the methods of research which make the study of society possible. The degree enables you to study a range of additional topics which cover the whole spectrum of sociological inquiry.
Staff are enthusiastic and dedicated and will help you to get the most out of your degree. In line with Liverpool Hope’s commitment to social justice, both nationally and internationally, Sociology attempts to understand social issues and problems that confront the modern world and, in so doing, challenges received wisdom.For more details and information about this course visit:
