HISTORY

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. Our History degree gives you 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.

By studying with us, you can study a range of topics from the Early Modern period to the Twentieth century. 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. You will benefit from being taught by a team of recognised scholars and experts in their fields who are dedicated and experienced teachers and researchers and regular publishers of their research.

Throughout your degree, you will be able to take advantage of the rich library, archival, museum and heritage resources available in Liverpool and further afield, as well as benefit from our partnership with National Museums Liverpool. 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 your learning experiences. The department runs a range of fieldwork activities every year in the local area and beyond, and offers the opportunity for study visits to major European cities each year.

PHILOSOPHY ETHICS & RELIGION

If you want to understand the world we live in, you have to be able to understand the great religious traditions and philosophical questions that shape it. Our degree in Philosophy, Ethics and Religion is a rigorous programme that offers an in-depth understanding of Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism and Christianity. At the same time, it exposes you to the big questions of philosophy: what is good? What are the ideals or principles by which we can lead a meaningful life, individually and politically? What defines a human person? What can we rationally say about the existence and nature of God?

The study of religion is grounded in an understanding of religions as they are lived and practised: field trips and research in real communities sit alongside the interpretation of texts, symbols and ideas. In philosophy, you will be reading the great texts of western thought for yourself, but also developing your own ability to think critically and put forward reasoned arguments.

Your studies will be led by internationally renowned lecturers who bring their own research to bear on their teaching. Our staff have special expertise in the study of Islam in Britain, Sri Lankan Buddhism and contemporary philosophy of religion, for example. They will guide and inspire you to clarify the questions you want to ask, and to explore the worldviews of others as you work out your own.
