ABOUT THE COURSE
Why do a MA in History at Liverpool Hope University? The MA in History offers students the chance to study the development of the modern world from ca. 1500 to the present. The programme builds on the skills of thinking, evaluation and writing that we stress at undergraduate level. Additionally, it will deepen the skills needed to analyse data and documentation and develop individual skills of writing, oral participation and presentation. Each graduate is monitored by a supervisor who offers professional advice and guidance.
Due to the various branches of expertise held among our academic staff students are free to produce an MA dissertation on an array of topics, including Elizabeth I; the court of Charles I; modern British and Irish history; The British Empire; the Spanish Civil War and anarchy; European Fascism and the Holocaust; the History of Food; The Northern Ireland conflict; Margaret Thatcher and Thatcherism; and general aspects of modern European History.
The qualification of an MA in History will allow you to enhance your personal interests, career specific opportunities and show potential for promotion to senior leadership.
The programme also assists personal development through an emphasis on personal responsibility, reflection and evaluation. In addition, you will develop transferable skills such as self-motivation, lateral thinking and key research and professional practice skills.
Graduates are likely to pursue careers in education and the University sector; community organisations, international organisations (UN and associated agencies), international business, diplomatic service, and the armed services.
Many schools now expect teachers to have studied to Masters level, especially if they apply for promotion. This course will also help teachers enhance the quality of their teaching.
Students completing the MA in History will also be well placed to go on to a doctorate (PhD) at Liverpool Hope.
