EARLY CHILDHOOD

The undergraduate programme in Early Childhood Studies provides a higher level of academic study that will extend your knowledge and understanding of children in their early years. We hope to ignite your curiosity as we explore young children’s development and interaction with the world and that in understanding the inequalities that children face locally and globally, you will grow as advocates for young children’s needs and rights.

The Early Childhood team aim to provide a stimulating and supportive learning environment for all our students through a high level of tutor support, access to exceptional University resources and engagement with our multidisciplinary teaching team with wide experience in research, practice and policy in the field. Together with the vital ingredient of your commitment as a student, these elements will enrich your learning experience. We also aim to enhance this where possible through engaging invited speakers and field visits to relevant spaces in Liverpool, a city rich in community connection and cultural experience.

The degree is taught by academics from a wide variety of backgrounds, including Sociology, Education, Philosophy and Psychology. The teaching team are all actively involved in research and have published in their specialist fields. They are all members of the thriving Liverpool Hope Childhood Research Forum and contribute to a range of research conferences both nationally and internationally. This experience provides an informed and supportive learning environment for the student characterised by depth and challenge.

For Single Honours students there is a compulsory placement as part of your degree. The placement will enable you to enhance your understanding of key themes and provides you with an insight into the professional context. For Combined Honours students the placement is optional. The Single Honours programme also offers the option to obtain separate professional certification as a graduate practitioner through assessment against the Early Childhood Graduate Practitioner Competencies.

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.
