The MA in Art History and Curating offers a theoretical and critical approach to the study of art history and curatorial practice. Read more
The MA in Art History and Curating offers a theoretical and critical approach to the study of art history and curatorial practice. Focusing mainly on the modern period (19th and 20th centuries), the programme will address key developments in art and art history up to the present day. For students who do not wish to undertake a full MA, a Postgraduate Certificate is also available.

The programme would appeal to graduates who have studied Fine Art, Art History or any other Arts and Humanities discipline, or those from non arts backgrounds wishing to pursue a new subject. It will also appeal to those already working in the museums or galleries sector wishing to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD). There are opportunities to participate in overseas study tours and in recent years the department has visited Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bilbao, Milan, Paris, Florence, Venice and New York. London visits and regional exhibition visits may also take place, depending on the exhibition programme for the year. The Arts play a significant and growing role in wealth creation and the regeneration of urban and rural environments. Visiting galleries and museums has never been more popular. The numbers of Art Education and heritage sites are expanding and all look to recruit postgraduates with a background in the Arts and Art History.

Study Details / Module Information

At the outset you will be introduced to the Art History and Curating programme through a series of lectures, seminars and tutorials, delivered by specialist academic staff. Your tutors will provide you with a firm foundation and knowledge of visual cultures and applied arts primarily in Europe and the U.S. enabling you to understand your own learning and study needs within the context of the subject. A contextual journal is introduced that will underpin your academic studies facilitating a personal and individual perspective.

You will continue to develop your theoretical skills through continuous tutorial consultation and supervision enabling you to devise your own work programme from the range of courses on offer. Teaching is by lectures, seminars, tutorials and gallery visits to enable the first hand study of artworks; their context and curation. We expect a critical approach towards writing with an awareness of contemporary art practice and the historical socio-political and cultural forces that inform it. Your programme of study will be agreed with your subject tutors, and will make full use of the museums and galleries on Merseyside and beyond.

This programme is addressed primarily to those either already involved in pastoral work, including leadership positions in Christian churches and organisations, or those interested in finding future employment in this area. It is unique in that it not only offers students an opportunity to gain a thorough and systematic training in methods and approaches in Pastoral Theology, but it also familiarises them with the academic discipline of Biblical Studies, including a focused and research based study of specific biblical texts as well as a broader perspective on themes in biblical theology.

Students are expected to develop a more mature and critical approach, based on sound knowledge and scholarship, and in full awareness of the complexity and hermeneutical issues involved. At the same time, all the Biblical Studies modules include theological and pastoral perspectives. In this way students learn to understand the texts of the Old and New Testament in their historical and socio-cultural setting, are introduced to methods and approaches used in the academic study of the Bible, the tools used by biblical scholars, and the most important developments in the field of biblical scholarship, but they also gain insight into their theological significance and are better prepared to appreciate the use of the Bible in pastoral and liturgical settings.

The MA Business & Management is a 12 month programme that offers a career development opportunity to a wide variety of students – from recent graduates, who may not have a business background, to potential or inexperienced managers based in the UK or overseas. Read more
The MA Business & Management is a 12 month programme that offers a career development opportunity to a wide variety of students – from recent graduates, who may not have a business background, to potential or inexperienced managers based in the UK or overseas. It is also expected to have some mature entry students. The programme aims to link the academic study of business and management with the complex and uncertain business environment faced by today’s managers. In doing this you will develop a comprehensive understanding of a range of important business issues, and will develop a critical perspective of these areas, with the view to developing your business and managerial knowledge, skills and understanding. As part of an international cohort of students you will also gain experience of working in cross-cultural teams that will equip you for a management role in the global economy. The MA in Business and Management aims to provide a stimulating learning and teaching environment in which to support the continued academic development of students by developing their analytical, critical, practical and intellectual skills, thereby contributing to the improvement of business and management practice.

The MA by Creative Practice is designed for professional practitioners, recent graduates and professionals who wish to update and re-establish their own personal development. Read more
The MA by Creative Practice is designed for professional practitioners, recent graduates and professionals who wish to update and re-establish their own personal development. The MA is based on an individually negotiated programme of practice and research rather than a pre-arranged programme of teaching. There is a strong emphasis on supervised independent learning, personal responsibility, reflection and evaluation. It is a practical course for the practical student.

Study Details / Module Information

The programme consists of four taught modules, one of which is formally timetabled and the others taught through tutorial contact. You must complete 180 credits to graduate with the MA and each module will be assessed. Assessment methods will vary and may include written papers, practical outcomes such as exhibitions, performances and presentations, market research and other aspects of professional creative practice.

- Theoretical Research and Professional Practice (30 credits)
- Negotiated Creative Practice (30 credits)
- Autonomous Creative Practice (30 credits)
- Creative Practice Final Project (90 credits)

Assessment for Theoretical Research and Professional Practice takes the form of three 3000 word written assignments, other modules are assessed on practical outcomes, supporting contextual work, marketing strategies etc. Negotiated Creative Practice and the Creative Practice Final also include a viva voce.

All staff teaching on the MA by Creative Practice are professional practitioners in their respective disciplines and research interests reflect this. Recent publications include chapters in books such as Introduction to John Godber Plays 3 (London: Methuen, 2003); conference papers such as Interventionist Theatre: Theatre in Conflict Resolution (University of Leeds, Bretton Hall, 2004); Living Place Project and its Impact on Regeneration and The Application of CAD/CAM in the Production of Abstract Sculptural Form, presented at the 2005 International Design Conference, Yunlin University, Taiwan. Staff also have works in a wide range of public and private collections such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and exhibit at exhibitions including Collect at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Music compositions by members of staff have been performed by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Members of Fine Art and Design staff held a group exhibition Staff and Alumni ’08 as part of the 2008 Liverpool Biennial, as well as having solo shows in Liverpool and beyond and taking part in international sculpture workshops. Throughout the year, Visiting Professors Joanna MacGregor and John Godber contribute to events within the Deanery, including the annual Cornerstone Festival.

Crime, justice, policy, surveillance and law and order are key issues in the 21st Century. The Masters degree in Criminology is designed specifically to let you explore these and related topics in depth. You will be encouraged to challenge established wisdom while studying the intellectual canon of the discipline.

At Liverpool Hope we are driven by a desire to not just be passive observers of criminological, social and criminal justice issues but to be active participants in it. This means that we pay special attention to the interests and goals of our postgraduate students who wish to pursue their studies here.

Drawing on our vibrant and developing research culture we offer an inter-disciplinary, contemporary and relevant degree programme, drawing expertise from our interest in current criminological trends in Britain, Europe and globally. Studying for a Masters in Criminology is guaranteed to be an intellectually interesting experience, challenging assumptions on contemporary questions around globalisation, environmental and green crime, state crime and the policing of protest to a critical analysis of the impact of gender, race and ethnicity, poverty and social exclusion on crime and criminal justice matters.

The Masters is a way of becoming a participant in criminological debate and analysis, whilst being supported in gaining an in-depth and critical understanding of the traditions and latest developments of the discipline.

Disability Studies is a relatively new but rapidly growing academic discipline, as illustrated by the international proliferation of courses, events, networks, journals, book series, monographs, edited collections, and so on. Though drawing on this progress substantially, the Disability Studies MA differs from similar programmes insofar as it places particular emphasis on cultural issues. We are not only interested in the policies, prejudices, and professions around disability but also its representation in literature, media, film, art and so on. Liverpool Hope University is particularly well suited as a host for this programme on many counts. Most obviously, and indeed most importantly, we have a wealth of specialist staff and resources. We have a number of experts in Disability Studies, award winning tutors, and internationally recognised scholars and researchers. What is more, the regional, national, and international profile of the programme is enhanced greatly by the Centre for Culture & Disability Studies–and, by extension, the Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies, the Literary Disability Studies book series, the on-going seminar series, and the International Network of Literary & Cultural Disability Scholars–that is housed at the Graduate School in the Faculty of Education, Liverpool Hope University.

Visual Culture at Liverpool Hope is underpinned by critical and creative practice attuned to key global issues. It is critical because of its intellectual rigour, and it is creative because you have the opportunity to produce an original portfolio of work. It is unusual for an MA to offer modules in both theory and practice, but MA Film, Media and Society is equally suited for students who prefer to specialise exclusively in either theoretical study or practical work, or who wish to combine the two areas. Thus students may have the benefit of co-teaching from academics and practitioners, which will inform their theoretical understanding and research with insights amplified by experience of the applied creative process, and, symbiotically, illuminate their practice with rigorous scholarly contextualisation.
