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.
The programme consists of taught modules, workshops and student led seminars, as well as a research dissertation. Assessment is through coursework, including essays, portfolios, seminar papers and collaborative projects. The courses are run in a flexible manner and enhanced by the resources of Liverpool Hope University and its partners. It is intended that the new postgraduate provision in history will be timetabled at times convenient to those who work during the week.
In addition to a module on historical methodology and historiography, students are also required to participate in the MA History Seminar. This is a forum for the presentation and discussion of topics connected to students’ own specialisations designed to assist the development of key postgraduate skills. Dissertation preparation is also provided to prepare students to undertake a substantial piece of independent research.
Alongside these compulsory elements, a wide range of optional modules are on offer. These reflect the current research interests of staff and are constantly updated. They include, for example: Piracy in England; The Court of Charles I; Gender and the changing role of women, 1880-1920; Britain and the World; and Modern Ireland, 1789-2009. In addition, a public history workshop option is on offer to students who are interested in engaging with the role of history in contemporary society.
