We live in a society in which most of what we see, use, or have contact with has been “designed”. Underpinned by a commitment to the tradition of the designer-maker, our degree aims to **creatively combine practice and theory** to challenge, develop and reflect creative methodologies. An intimate knowledge of materials and processes is explicitly connected to an understanding of their history and contemporary theory alike. Our Design degree strives to develop your individual visual possibilities and skills, emphasising the **importance of Design and Art and Design History within contemporary society**. It aims for autonomous engagement and professional practice within Design and related contemporary cultural industries, offering a broad range of career possibilities. You are taught in **well-equipped specialist studios and workshops** where you will have access to traditional and new technologies. You will work in studios and classrooms on a campus specialising in the creative and performing arts in a City renowned for its creative culture. You will be encouraged to manipulate and experiment with a wide variety of materials and techniques, providing you with opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of material specialisms in **ceramics, textiles and metals** underpinned by new technologies in design. The degree progresses towards the professional standards required for theory and practice-led research and culminating in a final collection of work. **Why study this degree at Liverpool Hope?** + Established links with businesses including Tate Liverpool and the Open Eye Gallery + Part of the AA2A project, providing placement opportunities for visual artists and designer/makers + Opportunity to exhibit your work in the Cornerstone Gallery
