**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. **Geography** Geography is about exploring, encountering and engaging with the world around us. It is a dynamic and exciting subject to study. It looks at how the physical world works; how people interact both with each other and with the physical world; how landscapes (both physical and human) evolve; and the ways in which the environment needs to be conserved and managed. Geography covers many different perspectives and brings them together to create a distinctive way of understanding the world. Whether your interests are more towards physical, environmental or human geography, our degree offers you the chance to **develop an integrated, enriched understanding of what is taking place on our planet**. Studying Geography means you will look at a **wide range of different topics** and learn a broad range of skills. For this reason, a **Geography degree is one of the most valued subjects among potential employers**. An enthusiastic and friendly team of geographers and environmentalists with wide research interests teach Geography at Hope. You will find that Liverpool is a great place to study Geography, being an excellent case study of economic, environmental and social regeneration, and having surroundings that include stunning upland and coastal landscapes.
