DRAMA

Explore theatre and performance, learn about the origins of current practices, and develop your hands-on skills in making new work.

Liverpool Hope University’s creative community is internationally renowned and world-leading in drama research and practice. You will develop your acting and directing skills, your ability to facilitate drama sessions, your devising skills as well as improving your  critical and reflective writing skills. We make full use of the many theatre venues in Liverpool, from the traditional to the experimental as well as our own Capstone Theatre and several well equipped studio theatre spaces dedicated for student use.

Throughout your time at Liverpool Hope University you will be asked to explore performance in relation to historical and contemporary social and ethical contexts, helping you to understand the critical place of the performing arts in twenty-first century society. Our motto is to ‘educate in the round’, meaning you will develop aesthetic and social skills as a potential future leader in the subject of drama.

EARLY CHILDHOOD

The undergraduate programme in Early Childhood Studies provides a higher level of academic study that will extend your knowledge and understanding of children in their early years. We hope to ignite your curiosity as we explore young children’s development and interaction with the world and that in understanding the inequalities that children face locally and globally, you will grow as advocates for young children’s needs and rights.

The Early Childhood team aim to provide a stimulating and supportive learning environment for all our students through a high level of tutor support, access to exceptional University resources and engagement with our multidisciplinary teaching team with wide experience in research, practice and policy in the field. Together with the vital ingredient of your commitment as a student, these elements will enrich your learning experience. We also aim to enhance this where possible through engaging invited speakers and field visits to relevant spaces in Liverpool, a city rich in community connection and cultural experience.

The degree is taught by academics from a wide variety of backgrounds, including Sociology, Education, Philosophy 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.

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 provides you with an insight into the professional context. For Combined Honours students the placement is optional. The Single Honours programme also offers the option to obtain separate professional certification as a graduate practitioner through assessment against the Early Childhood Graduate Practitioner Competencies.
