This course will allow you to develop your:
- performative skills across dance, singing and acting
- ability to analyse past works of Musical Theatre
- capacity to compose an original piece of Musical Theatre
- techniques of direction and producing works of Musical Theatre
- knowledge of the business management of Musical Theatre
We provide a number of programmes of study in Psychology. As well as three Single Honours programmes - BSc Psychology, BA Psychology & Education, and BSc Sports Psychology - we offer a number of Combined Honours programmes. Combined Honours programmes allow students to combine a core curriculum on Psychology with the core curriculum of a second subject. Giving students a choice over what they study is important to us. Choice of programmes allows students to study a course that reflects their prior interests, lived experience, or future goals.
Ethical practice and working within a shared set of values is also important to us; our University is deeply committed to serving the common good. We see Psychology as a discipline with the capacity, and responsibility, to make a positive contribution to how people live in everyday life. Through our teaching of Psychology, we strive to enable our students to grow into constructive citizens who are curious about people, and motivated to make a positive difference to the lives of others. Beyond classroom learning, there are opportunities to enrich your chosen programme of study in a way that will help you in developing your psychological thinking. They include going on a placement, working as a research assistant in a laboratory, travelling to another country as part of Global Hope, or under the Erasmus study abroad scheme.
Our enthusiasm for the discipline is reflected in our University’s TEF Gold Award, and our consistently high ratings in other reliable measures of the quality of a University; e.g. National Students’ Survey. If our departmental narrative matches with what you aspire to be, then come and study with us at Liverpool Hope University.
