UCAS Code: V100 Duration: 3 years

Overview

Hear from a tutor and student about studying History at Liverpool Hope.

The study of History helps you to understand how individuals, communities and societies have lived in the past and how those past experiences have helped to shape the present world. History helps us make sense of our world and understand what may lie ahead because the future is shaped by its history in so many ways. Students will have the opportunity to study a wide range of historical periods and topics with elements in British, Irish, European and International History from the late medieval age to the twentieth century. For example, you can select elements (courses) focused on Tudor and Stuart England and Ireland or Fascism and Dictatorship in twentieth century Europe. You will engage with a wide variety of historical evidence throughout the whole of your degree programme.

History at Liverpool Hope is part of the supportive and friendly environment of the Department of History and Politics and you will benefit from a subject team of recognised scholars and experts in their fields who are dedicated and experienced teachers and researchers and regular publishers of their research. If you choose to specialise in History you will receive dedicated and supportive tutorial supervision as you research and write your final-year dissertation.

You will enjoy access to a wealth of historical sources within Liverpool and Merseyside and we work with our partners in National Museums Liverpool to ensure that students benefit greatly from the important collections and archives in the city. Working with the staff and resources of the World Museum, the new Museum of Liverpool and the Maritime Museum and its associated International Slavery Museum forms an important part of our students' learning experiences. The department runs an extensive programme of fieldwork activities every year in the local area and beyond, and runs study visits to major European cities each year.
