CONSERVATION BIOLOGY

Conservation biology is concerned with the protection and management of nature and the Earth’s biodiversity. It involves an evaluation of human and other factors that affect all living organisms with the aim of protecting and conserving species, their habitats and ecosystems. It is an interdisciplinary subject that draws on natural sciences to devise satisfactory processes and approaches by which to sustain and protect plant and animal biodiversity in the UK and abroad.

This course mainly focuses on conservation in terrestrial environments. It develops knowledge of key areas such as the principles and practices of ecology, habitat management, nature conservation and the functioning of natural systems, particularly with regard to different points of view including scientific, ethical and philosophical perspectives. Opportunities are provided to apply knowledge and understanding of conservation biology during field courses within the UK and abroad giving first-hand experience of a range of ecosystems.

A Placement Year option is available for this course. Undertaking a placement year as part of your degree programme offers you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience alongside your studies.

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.
