Education Studies is a dynamic and successful department of Liverpool Hope University with a diverse and growing number of staff, students and researchers. It has developed an international reputation for excellence in research and teaching.
The study of Education at Liverpool Hope involves a detailed investigation of the four principal disciplines of education: history, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. The core of the department is a highly trained, innovative international team of academics from over seven different countries and Liverpool Hope is one of few universities in this subject area where 100% of teaching staff hold doctorates. The team are also involved in leading international subject organisations such as British Association for International and Comparative Education and Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain.
The undergraduate Education Major is a rigorous academic course with a broad professional orientation. It is designed to partner with a range of subjects on offer across the University. At postgraduate level, we offer an MA Education and MA International Education and also support the School of Teacher Education in delivering the Doctor and Master of Education programmes. The department also hosts the Centre for Education Policy Analysis, providing a 'hub' for staff and students to conduct research and exchange ideas.
