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.

SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS

The Special Educational Needs course will equip you to become a passionate advocate for disability rights and equality in your chosen profession. There are 14.6 million disabled people in the UK, and graduates with expertise in special educational needs and disability are in demand in a wide range of areas including education, health, social work and social care, local government, and business.

A supportive team of disabled and non-disabled academics will enable you to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to become a future leader in this area. You will learn about the historical, social and cultural factors that shape our understanding of special educational needs and disability. Your understanding of academic theories and models will be deepened by activities which challenge you to explore how this knowledge can be applied in professional settings. As well as tutors’ extensive professional experience, course content is informed by input from a range of guest speakers, and from our partner organisations, which include disabled-led and self-advocacy groups, education and care providers, charities, and disability arts organisations.

The Special Educational Needs course at Liverpool Hope is unique in that it is informed and enriched by the work of the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies, an internationally recognised centre of excellence in disability studies research, and the only UK research centre to focus on disability and culture. 

You can also study Special Educational Needs via a Single Honours degree with the course.
