INTERACTIVE & IMMERSIVE PERFORMANCE

Please note that this course is open for 2021/22 entry only

Technologies related to gaming, augmented and virtual realities have transformed the creative possibilities of all of the performing arts. This is as true for large-scale mainstream music concerts or theatre and dance productions through to more experimental music and performance artists.

The growth of importance of these technologies cannot be overstated in terms of creative innovation as well as economic and employment growth. The Digital Creative is an area of noted importance of economic investment and growth on Regional (North West) National and Global levels.

The programme of study will explore interactive and immersive digital programming environments and appropriate design techniques and their truly transformative effect upon all of the performing arts.

Students will be supported in the realisation of advanced projects such as digital scenography, interactive audio/visual projections, all of which will incorporate Game, Augmented, or Virtual Reality techniques – technologies that are transforming the way that we envision, create, perform and consume the performative arts.

This new programme could be partnered with another performing art – dance, music or drama – or subjects such as computer science or Artificial Intelligence, to make a truly innovative study experience.

SOCIOLOGY

Contemporary society is becoming ever more complex and the need to understand how it works is increasingly important. Sociology is the study of how society is organised, how this influences the attitudes and behaviour of individuals and the impact this has on social relationships both within and between societies. Accordingly, sociology is now commonly regarded as an essential discipline for understanding the development of all modern societies. The Sociology degree at Liverpool Hope will help you to think critically and constructively about the key questions relating to modern society.

Our sociology degree is based around a core that provides inputs from social theory and from the comparison of different forms of society. The degree will help you to examine ‘common-sense’ assumptions about the world by exploring the issues that confront society nationally and globally and studying the theories and methods that help to explain and understand these issues. It also examines and evaluates the methods of research which make the study of society possible. The degree enables you to study a range of additional topics which cover the whole spectrum of sociological inquiry.

Staff are enthusiastic and dedicated and will help you to get the most out of your degree. In line with Liverpool Hope’s commitment to social justice both nationally and internationally, Sociology attempts to understand social issues and problems that confront the modern world and, in so doing challenges received wisdom.
