**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **Computer Science** Computer Science is all about new ideas, new opportunities and fresh thinking. There is no other discipline that can be applied to so many different areas and have such a profound impact on all aspects of society. The dynamism of this exciting subject is reflected in this degree through the study of a range of topics including **networks, robotics, internet, and mobile and cutting-edge technologies** such as **Virtual Reality**. Study this degree with us and **you will acquire practical skills that are highly sought after by industry**, such as programming in C, C++, Java, Lua, Python, C# and ARM assembly languages. Computer Science has a wide- reaching social impact, posing many ethical questions, and these issues are examined at various points during the three years of study. Whilst Computer Science is intellectually challenging, the staff in the department will provide you with close academic support. **All staff** in the Department **are research active** and have a varied background in a diverse range of interests, and this enhances your experience by providing a rich curriculum with exposure to multiple approaches and areas of research. If you are enthusiastic, inventive and looking to shape the future, this degree is for you. **Law** Law shapes our society and influences every aspect of our lives. It defines our obligations and legal requirements, serves to regulate and define relationships and provides a means of redress when problems arise. To study Law is not only to **study a challenging subject**, but also to study the rules, principles and policies that underpin society. This degree gives you a **theoretical and philosophical grounding in Law**, as well as the ability to engage in its practical study and application. Study Law with us and you will gain an understanding of the fundamental principles, theories and key ideas that underpin the law in England and Wales. You also learn about the way Public Law provides the legal framework within which government and administration functions, the structure of Law and Government under which we live, and the values of democracy, rule of law and constitutionalism that underpin that structure. We aim to produce graduates who do not merely know or know how to, but understand why things are as they are and how they could be different. It is about **gaining a deep approach to the subject**, in which you try to relate ideas in one subject to those in others, to understand what you read, questioning material, making links and pursuing lines of inquiry out of interest.
