INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

Every day, international issues are in the news headlines – this is your chance to become an expert on relations between states, economies, ideas and societies. In a world where nuclear weapons remain primed for use, the world economy teeters on the brink of collapse and delicate ecosystems are under threat, it is little wonder that our International Relations degree is proving a popular choice among students who wish to better understand the world’s most challenging problems.

International Relations is a multidisciplinary subject, which draws in contributions from politics, history, media, sociology, law, economics and religion. Global issues dominate the news headlines on a daily basis and International Relations will allow you to focus on this dimension of politics. This is an opportunity to become an expert in international issues in a historical, political and cultural context.

All our academics are conducting internationally published research. Our key strengths are in Theories of International Relations; Peace and Conflict; British and US foreign policy and EU politics. Our subject deals squarely with some of the most daunting, intractable but important challenges of today.

Liverpool Hope can also offer work placement opportunities via our Careers hub. In Politics we’ve also organised a Practitioners in Politics series of events, in conjunction with our Careers Office, where individuals including MPs, the Mayor of Liverpool and the Merseyside Commissioner for Crime and Policing have come to advise students on pathways into politically oriented careers and the skills needed to get there.

MEDIA & COMMUNICATION

Liverpool is a vibrant city of culture and a hub of media creativity and innovation, and is an ideal location to pursue your studies in Media and Communication. This is an exciting and important time to study Media and Communication, as the impact of the media on society has never been greater or changing at so rapid a pace.

At Liverpool Hope, we will support you in developing a deeper understanding of the media’s relationship to society, history, culture, power, and industry. The course will encourage you to look at digital and social media from new perspectives, analysing how they have disrupted traditional ways of communicating and interacting with the world around us. And it will challenge you to become an adaptable, independent, and professional communicator: someone who can develop original ideas and produce creative journalistic, digital and social media content to deliver on them.

The course is designed to help you become an industry leader who is equipped to take on the critical task of working towards a trustworthy, ethical media. You will gain advanced skills in professional journalistic, digital and social media communication across a variety of platforms, while also developing transferable skills in critical analysis and creative practice that will prepare you for a wide range of careers. Our curriculum is taught by tutors with international reputations for world leading research and who have industry experience in their own practice traditions, including journalism and digital and social media communication.
