Course Summary:
**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **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**. **Special Educational Needs** Studying Special Educational Needs at Liverpool Hope University will enable you to **understand a range of different learning needs** and will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to educate others about the nature of disability. The degree incorporates insights from education, as well as drawing on work in the arts, humanities and health care, to ensure you gain a broad and balanced understanding of the principal features of education in a wide range of contexts. A central aspect of the course is an understanding of medical and social constructions of Special Educational Needs and Disability, the legal requirements regarding provision for SEN/ Disability and a critical understanding of past and contemporary practices. By completing this degree, you will have gained a **knowledge and understanding of the global perspectives on special education** and disability and issues relating to children and families, as well as having the ability to critically engage with professional expertise. Special Educational Needs (SEN) at Liverpool Hope University is an interdisciplinary subject underpinned by the work of the **Centre for Culture and Disability Studies** (CCDS). You will become a professional who is knowledgeable and skilled in this field. You will enter your professional life recognising the importance of compassion and understanding of your work with, and on behalf of, those who are disabled and/or identified as having a special educational need.

    Not been at university for very long but it's a small uni which concentrates more on the individual, feels very homely- loving it so far!
