**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **Drama** Do you want to learn about the history of theatre and how to analyse it? Do you want to discover how to understand a play and how to write intelligently about it? Do you have a **passion for playwriting** and want to explore your ideas with the support of established practitioners and playwrights? If yes, then this Drama degree is for you. At Liverpool Hope you will **study both the creative and theoretical aspects of drama and performance**. Our qualified staff will introduce you to a range of practices and ideas for you to explore through performance, presentation and written work. We make full use of the many theatres in Liverpool and you will spend time watching and reviewing work from the Everyman, Playhouse and Royal Court. Theatre-going and a programme of learning, involving our own staff and a range of guest lecturers and artists, combine to provide a theatrical vocabulary. It also offers an understanding and deepening insight that allows us to question established practices, create new work and new interpretations of plays to be presented and discussed in one of our **well-equipped studio theatre spaces**. The degree is taught at the Creative Campus near Liverpool city centre, giving you the benefit of a small campus experience that is supportive of big ambitions. Drama does not exist in a social vacuum. It is a vibrant commentary on lives lived, lost and longed for. Throughout your time in the Drama, Dance and Performance Studies Department you will be asked to place performance work in a social and ethical context that deepens societal understanding and broadens personal responsibility. **Marketing** Marketing is one of the **most challenging, fast-moving and exciting disciplines** in business globally. Our Marketing degree has a theoretical focus that is combined with practical examples of how companies apply the theory on a day-to- day basis, meaning that what you learn is not only academically sound but also rooted in the realities of today’s dynamic marketplace. During your degree, you will be **provided with the key skills and knowledge that will enable you to understand marketing context**, marketing research and the discipline’s central role to business success, while allowing you to reflect on the moral and ethical implications of marketing behaviour. The ever advancing fields of Social Media and digital marketing run through the marketing curriculum as central themes and allow you to reflect on the dynamic challenges and opportunities that these technological and cultural changes provide. The degree has been designed so that you **learn from research-active staff** while at the same time being mentored and given masterclasses by industry leaders. Marketing focuses on a wide range of organisations, from SMEs to global multinational companies, and we have close interaction with the **Chartered Institute of Marketing** (CIM). Studying a comprehensive view of the marketing world prepares you for a career in organisations of any type and size.
