**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **Dance** Dance can be described as a fluid art form. It is constantly changing, exposed to different cultural contexts, bodily histories and physical disciplines, as well as being influenced by political and social movements. This degree aims to *explore dance as a living social practice and dynamic art form, considering how dance throughout both eastern and western cultures has been cultivated through traditional training practices as well as more contemporary cultural influences. Dance at Liverpool Hope looks at the bodies, techniques, performances and histories that make up dance practice today both from an embedded perspective - as a source for developing material - and from a reflective position, combining both theoretical and practical approaches to learning. The **dance team are all professional practitioners and active researchers** whose specialist skills map into the diverse areas of site-specific choreography, multicultural dance and somatic practice. During your studies, you will have the **opportunity to work alongside professional visiting choreographers and dance artists**, performing at our Capstone Theatre for public audiences as well as developing a consistent studio practice through one to one and group seminars and regular dance classes and workshops. Here at Liverpool Hope we actively encourage students to consider their art form as an ethical and embodied practice, where dance can reflect some of the social and cultural concerns of our day. **Nutrition** Nutrition and the health of the nation is a topic that is prevalent in today’s society. Our Nutrition degree is focussed on developing graduates who are able to face the changing environment of contemporary workplaces, especially in consideration with the changes within the NHS. This degree is ideal for those who would like to become a professional nutritionist, or progress to further studies in the area of human nutrition, dietetics, public health or food science. The Nutrition degree at Liverpool Hope has been designed to develop the essential knowledge, understanding and skills that a nutritionist requires. The curriculum includes a focus on the **delivery of five core competencies** in nutritional science; food chain, social and behaviour sciences, health and well-being, and professional conduct. You will be taught in our new Health Sciences building, which features specialist laboratories dedicated to nutrition, comprising of **purpose-built food and nutrition laboratories** that fit into areas of clinical nutrition, nutritional biochemistry, food sensory analysis and food product development. You will learn from a **highly committed team of research- active registered nutritionists** with practical experience in nutrition, who are enthusiastic about both the academic subject and the quality of your student experience.
