**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **Biology** Biology is a dynamic and constantly evolving science that has benefited from many recent discoveries made possible through powerful technologies such as genomic analysis, digital imagery and computer generated models. The Biology degree at Liverpool Hope takes a broad approach to studying life on Earth. You will have the **opportunity to study a wide variety of organisms and different environments**, as well as explore a range of biological processes and become proficient in carrying out techniques for investigating them. At Hope, we take a **dynamic and highly practical approach to teaching Biology**. Your learning will concentrate on practical Biology with opportunities to study in the laboratory and during field trips, as well as visits to biological research centres. Our lecturers are enthusiastic and approachable research-active biologists whose experience and expertise facilitates research-informed teaching in contemporary aspects of evolutionary biology, animal behaviour, conservation biology, insect ecology, avian biology, bioinformatics, genomics and stable isotope ecology. The more theoretical and technical themes in Biology are covered during **interactive lectures**, and then investigated during small-group tutorials and workshops. You won’t just learn biological theory, you will become actively engaged in all aspects of the subject. You will be able to **carry out your own research projects**, and will be encouraged to consider the wider impacts of Biology on society and everyday life. **Business Management** The world of Business Management is fast-moving and dynamic: Business organisations are facing unprecedented change and complex challenges both within the UK and globally.
