**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **Film & Visual Culture** If you want an exciting career in the creative industries, but also want to understand the role that film and visual culture plays in wider society, studying at Liverpool Hope is the right choice for you. Film and Visual Culture is an intellectually stimulating degree that combines theory and practice, and encourages you to explore the way in which cinema represents issues such as gender, race and inequality. This degree is underpinned by creative and critical practice. It is creative because it gives you the opportunity to develop practical skills in the fields of screenwriting, filmmaking (drama and ocumentary), photography and animation. It is critical because it involves the in-depth study of film history and theory, including the way in which cinema intersects with a range of social and political issues. You will graduate with a degree underpinned by academic rigour, but with the transferable skills needed to pursue a wide variety of careers in the creative industries. **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. This degree gives you a theoretical and philosophical grounding in Law, as well as the ability to engage in its practical study and application. To succeed in Law, you will need to be able to think logically, enjoy solving problems, have a good eye for detail, be able to argue your point, and test the views and opinions of others. The law we explore together is intellectually stimulating and rewarding, and a natural choice for those who are actively curious about current affairs, rules, principles, society, morality, ethics, the role of the state and value of the individual.
