Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.
Dance can be described as a fluid art form. It is constantly changing, exposed to different cultural contexts, bodily histories and physical disciplines, as well as being influenced by political and social movements. This degree aims to *explore dance as a living social practice and dynamic art form, considering how dance throughout both eastern and western cultures has been cultivated through traditional training practices as well as more contemporary cultural influences.
Dance at Liverpool Hope looks at the bodies, techniques, performances and histories that make up dance practice today both from an embedded perspective - as a source for developing material - and from a reflective position, combining both theoretical and practical approaches to learning. The dance team are all professional practitioners and active researchers whose specialist skills map into the diverse areas of site-specific choreography, multicultural dance and somatic practice.
During your studies, you will have the opportunity to work alongside professional visiting choreographers and dance artists, performing at our Capstone Theatre for public audiences as well as developing a consistent studio practice through one to one and group seminars and regular dance classes and workshops. Here at Liverpool Hope we actively encourage students to consider their art form as an ethical and embodied practice, where dance can reflect some of the social and cultural concerns of our day.
Philosophy & Ethics
If you are interested in the big questions of life such as, ‘What values should I live by? Does God exist? Is there a purpose to life? What is justice?’ then studying Philosophy and Ethics at Liverpool Hope will help you develop your own reasoned responses to such questions. Through engaging with key texts from philosophical thought, this degree will enable you to reflect critically on a range of complex ideas and deeply contentious issues raised by questioning our assumptions concerning ethical and philosophical matters.
Philosophy and Ethics allows you to set foundations in philosophical and ethical thinking and then gain a more detailed knowledge in the areas of Continental Philosophy and the Philosophy of Religion; Ethical and Political Philosophy. Religion and Philosophy provides you with a broad knowledge and understanding of six major world religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam); the philosophical approach to religion; and religious and philosophical approaches to truth.
This degree will strengthen your reasoning skills central to philosophical argument, and an important transferable skill. It builds your ability to use sources intelligently, think critically and make your case with logic and depth. The sustained philosophical enquiry equips you to engage with the pressing questions of our time.
