Welcome to the Department of History and Politics at Liverpool Hope. On our welcoming corridor you will find a diverse, successful and growing community of students, researchers and lecturers.
We offer a variety of courses and each one places the student at the heart of the subject. Students receive the dedicated one-to-one academic and pastoral support which can be lacking in some larger institutions.
