Liverpool is a vibrant city, tapping into the momentum and energy of a diverse creative scene, which stems from a long history as an international port city known for its music. Our course adopts a creative approach to music production that considers equipment to be a means to artistic ends, an aspect of modern musicianship that is essential for any self-sufficient practitioner.
Music Production gives you the opportunity to explore the creative, technical, and theoretical aspects of one of the most rapidly changing creative landscapes. The course will expose you to aspects of the music business and industry, as well as its many historical and theoretical concepts. It provides you the opportunity to develop lasting, transferable skill sets that empower you to develop a resilient and sustainable approach to your future practice. To achieve these aims, our programme features:
- A creative outlook towards music production that explores equipment as means to artistic ends.
- A forward-looking programme that values new practices in music production without excluding traditional topics.
- An integrated approach to music production that covers the fundamentals of the topic without leaving gaps in knowledge.
- A team with interests in diverse aspects of music production that are pursued professionally beyond the university setting.
Our students have had the opportunity to gain professional experience with a variety of professional organisations, including Liverpool Sound City, Immix Ensemble, Parr Street Studios, Sentric Music, Ditto Music, The Vocal Booth studio, Melodic Distraction (radio station), and The Beatles Experience, among others.
We continually establish connections within the wider industry and our programme regularly hosts music industry professionals, who provide real-world knowledge through their guest lectures. Join our dynamic creative community of music production to facilitate the next steps in your creative and professional journey.

PHILOSOPHY & ETHICS
Philosophy and Ethics explores the big questions of life and morality: on what basis do we judge things good or evil? It challenges you to examine your assumptions, opinions and worldview. Do we need to believe in God for life to have meaning – or have the arguments for the existence of God broken down? What does it mean to be human? Do we have free will, or is our life completely determined?
Through close attention to the primary texts of philosophers such as Plato, Aquinas, Descartes, Hume, Kant and Nietzsche, our Philosophy and Ethics degree will help you learn to analyse and evaluate arguments, and to compose and communicate your own ideas in a reasoned way. You will have a grounding in the foundational questions of philosophy. As you progress, you will look in depth at philosophy of religion, political philosophy, applied ethics and issues of human personhood, artificial intelligence, ecology and animality.
The degree is taught by a core team of critical academics who are passionate about teaching and are internationally recognised researchers and writers. This degree will equip you with the intellectual skills and perspectives needed to face the ethical and ideological challenges of the contemporary world.For more details and information about this course visit:
