Liverpool Hope University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.
Art & Design History
Art and Design History is an exciting discipline that encompasses the study of visual artefacts, museum and gallery practices and the production and circulation of meaning around art and design. The Art and Design History combined honours degree provides a systematic understanding of art and design practices and theories with a strong emphasis on critical thinking.
Exclusive partnerships with National Museums Liverpool and Tate Liverpool, plus close collaborations with FACT and Bluecoat Gallery and Display Centre, offer you privileged access to important collections in Liverpool and experts working in the field. There is also the possibility to participate in overseas study tours – in recent years the department has visited Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bilbao, Milan, Paris, Florence, Venice, Berlin and New York.
Another distinctive element of this degree is the curriculum, which covers key developments in art and design history. Furthermore, students in the second and third year will take ‘Professional Practice for Art and Design History’. These courses look at theoretical approaches to museology, as well as more practical considerations such as conservation, exhibition planning and design, curatorial practices and educational activities.
Do you want to learn about the history of theatre and how to analyse it? Do you want to discover how to understand a play and how to write intelligently about it? Do you have a passion for playwriting and want to explore your ideas with the support of established practitioners and playwrights? If yes, then this Drama degree is for you.
At Liverpool Hope you will study both the creative and theoretical aspects of drama and performance. Our qualified staff will introduce you to a range of practices and ideas for you to explore through performance, presentation and written work. We make full use of the many theatres in Liverpool and you will spend time watching and reviewing work from the Everyman, Playhouse and Royal Court. Theatre-going and a programme of learning, involving our own staff and a range of guest lecturers and artists, combine to provide a theatrical vocabulary. It also offers an understanding and deepening insight that allows us to question established practices, create new work and new interpretations of plays to be presented and discussed in one of our well-equipped studio theatre spaces.
The degree is taught at the Creative Campus near Liverpool city centre, giving you the benefit of a small campus experience that is supportive of big ambitions. Drama does not exist in a social vacuum. It is a vibrant commentary on lives lived, lost and longed for. Throughout your time in the Drama, Dance and Performance Studies Department you will be asked to place performance work in a social and ethical context that deepens societal understanding and broadens personal responsibility.
