Popular Music: The Popular Music combined honours programme is designed to equip students with the appropriate academic knowledge and skills to enter the contemporary popular music industries. The programme is designed along three strands: 'Studying Popular Music', 'Playing Popular Music' and 'The Business of Popular Music'. Each of these strands is designed to interact, but also represent discrete opportunities for students to specialise in very specific areas. Tourism: The Tourism programme at Hope looks at Tourism from both a management and academic perspectives. It looks at issues such as the structure of the tourism industry; impacts of tourism on people and the environment; the emergence of new forms of tourism to rival the package holiday; tourism destination management; global tourism development and events management.
