About us

School of Histories, Languages and Cultures

The School was formed in 2010 as part of a major reorganization of the academic structures across the University. Five departments covering more than a dozen subject areas joined together to make up the School. In our research and in our teaching we explore culture and society from the origins of humanity to modern day politics.

We are a community of scholars working across a vast number of disciplines and united by our research interests in history and heritage, languages and literatures, and power, conflict and conflict resolution.

The School undertakes the following areas of study:-

  • History
  • Irish Studies
  • Politics
  • Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology
  • Cultures, Languages and Area Studies
  • Archives and Records Management

School of Politics

Postgraduate education and training in Politics has a long and impressive history at the University of Liverpool, matched by cutting edge research expertise.

As a department we've particular research strengths in:-

  • European Politics and Security
  • Nationalism
  • British Politics
  • Irish Politics
  • Caribbean Politics
  • Latin American Politics, Media and Politics
  • Mediterranean Politics

As a postgraduate student, taught or research, you'll be closely involved in our research community and activities, as well as free to pursue a wide range of topics. Completion rates are excellent and our graduate students' work has been widely published.

We hold “+3” status by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). This means we can put forward research degree candidates for funding if they've completed an ESRC-recognised MA degree, such as our MA by Research in EU Politics.

As part of the ESRC North-West Doctoral Training Centre (other partners are Lancaster University and Manchester University) we're eligible for postgraduate studentships.
