Course Summary:
This is a **four year degree** taught at our Hope Park campus. The **Foundation Year** aims to develop your skills so that after a year, you will be equipped with the necessary skills needed for studying the full BA Hons degree programme. **Criminology** Crime and how to deal with it are amongst the most significant and contentious issues of our time, so it is vital that we understand this subject. Criminology is the study of crime, its causes and effects, and what we do about it. At Liverpool Hope University, you will **study how crime is defined and who defines it**, why some people commit offences, and what happens to those who commit crimes if they are caught. Criminology also studies the impact of the various agencies and organisations that deal with crime: **the police, the courts, the probation and prison services**, as well as the role of the Ministry of Justice and the Home Office. Studying Criminology enables you to focus on questions such as ‘is criminal behaviour learned or inherited?’ and ‘why are some actions defined as criminal and not others?’; ‘what is the purpose of punishment and to what extent does it deter criminal behaviour?’ Criminology is a well-established degree at Liverpool Hope and is taught by staff with considerable experience at national and international level. **Several key criminological textbooks are written by members of the department**. The Criminology team is enthusiastic and dedicated and will help you to get the most out of your degree. Criminology is **heavily focused on justice** - how it is delivered, to whom, by whom and whether or not it is effective. This reflects Liverpool Hope’s commitment to social justice both nationally and internationally. **English Literature** Do you have a passion for literature? Do you want to **explore the relationships between literary texts**, other media and the cultures that produce and consume them? Study English Literature at Liverpool Hope and you will encounter a wide variety of texts from medieval right through to contemporary literature. As much as possible we try to make the experience of literature come alive by not only studying texts in classrooms but also going on various **local and national field trips.** You will also be **trained to read and analyse rare books and manuscripts** from our library's Special Collections in courses on the history of the book and the history of publishing. During your three years of study, you will gain a sound grasp of the contexts and approaches within which English literature can be studied, as well as gaining a sense of the development across periods of English literature. You **expand your awareness of and sensitivity to the conventions and expectations that shape communication**, and the dynamics of these within a given text. You also develop a critical appreciation of the ways in which knowledge of other disciplines and their relationships to English literature can contribute to a deeper understanding of literature. The academic staff teaching the degree have research expertise in a broad range of fields, from late medieval to contemporary literature. We pride ourselves on offering a **challenging and stimulating degree**, and our commitment to small group teaching allows us to help each individual student to develop sophisticated analytical and communication skills through working both independently and in groups. We strive to support you in the pursuit of academic excellence.
