**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **Information Technology** Information Technology is a **rapidly changing and exciting subject.** Organisations are increasingly relying on information technology to carry out key business functions. There is an explosion in the use of mobile devices to shop online and there is a high demand for skilled professionals who are able to effectively manage information systems. Well-designed software applications that are effective and usable is a crucial requirement for employers. Our Information Technology degree prepares you to meet the needs of a wide range of organisations, emphasising the development of a variety of technologies, especially web and mobile technologies that are increasingly becoming a part of our everyday lives. During your studies, you will have **opportunities to develop computational thinking** and a systems approach to formulating, cortically analysing and solving complex problems. The degree is intellectually challenging and is taught by staff with a varied background and a diverse range of interests. Your student experience is enhanced by a **rich curriculum that exposes you to multiple approaches to technological problems**. Information Technology has a wide-reaching social impact, posing many ethical questions, and these issues are explored at various points during the degree. **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.
