**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **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. **Media & Communication** If you want an exciting career in the media but also want to understand how and why the media reports and represents the world in the ways it does, studying at Hope is the next step for you. Media and Communication provides you with an opportunity to closely study and analyse the ways in which the media industry shapes and is shaped by our world. Our degree is designed to **help you become an industry leader** who is equipped to take on the critical task of ensuring a more reliable, trustworthy media industry, whether you choose to work in television, radio, journalism, marketing or PR. We think one of the best ways to study creativity is by making things, so you have the opportunity to make films (drama, documentary or animation), produce photographic portfolios, work in a studio and write screenplays. Our curriculum is taught by **lecturers with a reputation for international research** and by a practitioner who has made BAFTA and EMMY award winning programmes and animated films. Media and Communication at Liverpool Hope is **underpinned by the notion of interrogating power**. We believe that the media must always be held to account and has a responsibility to pursue social justice. Whether it be through journalism, ethical marketing or documentary filmmaking, our aim is to produce graduates who will make a better world.
