MEDIA & COMMUNICATION

If you want an exciting career in the media but also want to understand how and why the media reports and represents the world in the ways it does, studying at Hope is the next step for you. Media and Communication provides you with an opportunity to closely study and analyse the ways in which the media industry shapes and is shaped by our world. Our degrees (Combined and Single Honours) are designed to help you become an industry leader who is equipped to take on the critical task of ensuring a more reliable, trustworthy media industry, and to work as a cross-platform media practitioner.

If you choose to take Single Honours Media and Communication, you explore the history and theory of film and other visual media, such as photography and animation, and the cultural and creative contexts in which they are produced and consumed. We also think one of the best ways to study creativity is by making things, so you have the opportunity to make films (drama, documentary or animation), produce photographic portfolios, work in a studio and write screenplays. Our curriculum is taught by lecturers with a reputation for international research and by a practitioner who has made BAFTA and EMMY award winning programmes and animated films.

Media and Communication at Liverpool Hope is underpinned by the notion of interrogating power. We believe that the media must always be held to account and has a responsibility to pursue social justice. Whether it be through journalism, digital and social media theory and applied skills, our aim is to produce graduates who will make a better world.

MUSIC PRODUCTION

The study of Music Production gives you the opportunity to investigate the creative, technical and theoretical exploration of one of the most universal art forms. All while being exposed to aspects of the music business and industry, as well as its many historical and theoretical concepts.

Drawing on the diverse musical heritage of Liverpool, students of Music Production at Liverpool Hope explore the production of musical performance and composition of music across a broad range of topics and genres, such as popular, classical, jazz and electronic. Your studies will focus on music production and will be underpinned by technical, theoretical and historical areas of enquiry, led by staff with a broad range of teaching, professional and research specialisms.

Music Production is part of our School of Creative & Performing Arts, based in the purpose-built Capstone Building at our Creative Campus. The Capstone is home to a collection of musical instruments that cater for all genres, including a Steinway Model D two harpsichords, a vibraphone and timpani. We also have a suite of sound-proofed practice rooms equipped with Steinway pianos, and four electronic studios.

The Creative Campus at Liverpool Hope University has some newly upgraded recording studio facilities. The Cornerstone Building’s existing recording studio has had a major overall featuring 16 additional preamps in the form of Audient ASP880s and a new SSL Nucleus 2 Dark console, all seated into an Argosy Halo-K Workstation. Combining this with a brand new microphone package, this room is very well kitted out to record all varieties of music. Amongst the microphone package are AKG C414s, Shure SM7Bs, Shure Beta57s and Beta58s, EV RE20 and many more.
