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

If you are interested in the big questions of life such as, ‘What values should I live by? Does God exist? Is there a purpose to life? What is justice?’ then studying Philosophy and Ethics at Liverpool Hope will help you develop your own reasoned responses to such questions. Through engaging with key texts from philosophical thought, this degree will enable you to reflect critically on a range of complex ideas and deeply contentious issues raised by questioning our assumptions concerning ethical and philosophical matters.

Philosophy and Ethics allows you to set foundations in philosophical and ethical thinking and then gain a more detailed knowledge in the areas of Continental Philosophy and the Philosophy of Religion; Ethical and Political Philosophy. Religion and Philosophy provides you with a broad knowledge and understanding of six major world religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam); the philosophical approach to religion; and religious and philosophical approaches to truth.

This degree will strengthen your reasoning skills central to philosophical argument, and an important transferable skill. It builds your ability to use sources intelligently, think critically and make your case with logic and depth. The sustained philosophical enquiry equips you to engage with the pressing questions of our time.
