NUTRITION

Nutrition is becoming a vital discipline as the awareness of the importance of healthy eating grows.  Nutritionists have a key role in helping us understand how diet helps maintain health and prevents disease.  Nutritionists work in a diverse and wide range of professional roles providing and implementing evidence-based nutritional guidelines, public health nutrition strategies, and developing the safe, sustainable, and healthy foods of the future.

Our Nutrition degree is focused on developing the practical, professional and research skills needed to develop a successful career as a professional nutritionist  in various roles across the public health and commercial food sectors (as well as preparation for further study or pursuing a professional career in dietetics).

The curriculum includes a focus on nutritional science; the food supply chain; the social and behavioral sciences; health and wellbeing; and the importance of professional conduct. You will be taught in our new Health Sciences building, which features specialist laboratories and equipment dedicated to the study of food, nutrition and health.

You will learn from a highly committed team of research-active UK registered nutritionists (supported with additional expertise in food science, the biological sciences, and public health). Our staff have a wide  range of practical experience and are  enthusiastic about both the academic subject and the quality of your student experience.

POLITICS

Politics affects all of us. It is central to human life and human affairs. It is fundamental to how we organise and govern ourselves and to how we resolve conflicts. The decisions we make as political communities, who makes them and how, have consequences for how we live, from questions of war and peace, the distribution of wealth, our rights, freedoms, responsibilities, our access to education, transport and health care.

In this rapidly changing world, new challenges are constantly arising – from climate change to new technologies, from identity politics to Brexit and the Covid-19 pandemic – and the study of politics needs to respond. At Liverpool Hope, therefore, we seek to engage with politics and political issues in the real world as they evolve and change over time. In doing so, we actively encourage debate and discussion amongst our students, encouraging a stronger awareness and appreciation of different points of view.

On this programme of study, you will explore key ideas, institutions and politics in an international, national and local context. You will be taught by staff who are experts in their fields, who will teach you to engage with political research and develop the capacity to be an independent, critically-minded scholar. The course also aims to equip you with transferable skills to take into the world of work.
