The University of Liverpool’s Continuing Education (CE) programme has announced an eclectic mix of short courses for its Modern History programme which kicks off this February.
The new courses – taught online in the university’s virtual classroom – ensure students enjoy the benefits of engagement with both tutors and their peers from the comfort of their own home.
Included in the university’s offering are a range of subjects, such as The History of the Northern Irish Peace Process 1985-2010; In Search of Equality: Feminisms in the 1970s; and Educating Liverpool: the story of Liverpool’s schools, which looks at the development of education and schooling across Liverpool and Merseyside over the past 500 years.
There are also three courses under the banner of ‘Ireland and the Left in an Age of Revolution’ – each focusing on an iconic figure of the time – and for those wanting to go a little further back in time, Saxon Britain examines how the Roman armies left Britain in 410 and soon after groups of Angles, Saxons and Jutes arrived and began to settle in the region.
Participants will also have access to a wide range of the University’s academic support and, on completion, will be awarded with a formal University of Liverpool Certificate of Engagement that acknowledges their professional and personal development.
