**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** Film and Visual Culture is an intellectually stretching, stimulating and challenging degree that probes social issues and confronts inequalities and prejudices such as race, class, and gender through their representation in national and international films throughout history. Critical practice on the degree enables you to **study the history, theory and contemporary subject of film**, whilst having the opportunity to apply this understanding to creative practice in the fields of **screenwriting, filmmaking (drama and documentary), photography and animation.** You will graduate with a degree underpinned by academic rigour, but with the transferable skills needed if you intend to work in the creative industries. The degree is **taught by leading international scholars and practitioners** and are supported by outstanding library resources and practical equipment. Extra curricula activities support the curriculum whilst widening critical and creative horizons. These include fieldtrips to the national Museum of the Moving image, and a London fieldtrip, which in recent years included a visit to the Media Department at the Ministry of Defence, and photographic exhibitions at Tate Britain. **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.
