Childhood & Youth and Food & Nutritional Sciences at Liverpool Hope University - UCAS

Course summary

Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally. Childhood & Youth Childhood and Youth is an exciting, multidisciplinary subject in which you will explore a range of issues and challenges faced by children and young people in contemporary society, both here in the UK and on a global level. Drawing on key ideas from sociology, psychology, politics, history and geography, the degree examines important questions about children and young people’s development, their life chances and their opportunities for participation in wider society. Topics studied include how social class, poverty, gender and ethnicity impact upon young people’s lives; how the media influence how children and young people are perceived by adults, and how they view themselves; and why young people take part in risky activities. In examining such questions, you will also explore various political debates and policy initiatives, as well as learning about various ways of researching with children and young people that aim to help them overcome the many challenges that they face. Food & Nutritional Sciences Knowledge of food and nutritional science is becoming ever more vital, particularly given the increasing awareness of foods role in important issues such as health and disease and environmental sustainability. Consequently, individuals with expertise in these areas will play a key role in a diverse and wide range of professions, such as developing the safe, sustainable, and healthy foods of the future, creating public health nutrition strategies, and designing and implementing evidence-based nutritional guidelines. Our Food & Nutritional Sciences degree is focused on developing a set of practical, professional, and intellectual skills which are needed to develop a successful career in various roles across the commercial food sector and public health, as well as preparation for further study, working as a nutritionist, or pursuing a professional career in dietetics. The course curriculum is broad yet deep and draws from the food, nutrition, and health sciences, as well as the social and behavioural sciences. There is also emphasis on elements including food product development and the food supply chain, health and wellbeing, sustainability, and the development of professional skills. You will be taught in our state-of-the-art Health Science building, which features specialist laboratories and equipment dedicated to the study of food, nutrition, and health. Those who decide to study for the Single Hons course will also be eligible for direct registration as a Registered Associate Nutritionist (ANutr) with the Association for Nutrition (AfN). You will learn from a highly committed team of research-active UK Registered Nutritionists (supported with additional expertise in food science and technology, the biological sciences, and public health). Our staff have a wide range of practical experience and are incredibly enthusiastic about both the academic subject and the quality of your student experience.
