Course content

The Eighteenth-Century Worlds pathway will take you on an investigative journey through the history, literature and visual and material culture of Europe and its interactions with the wider world, from the Atlantic to Asia.

This highly original interdisciplinary postgraduate course gives you the opportunity to study in one of Britain’s leading Atlantic ports; a city rich in eighteenth-century history, architecture and culture.

Researching the subject is a real pleasure in Liverpool. The city is home to more national museums and galleries than any other English city outside of London.

The expertise of our research-active tutors and the combination of modules makes this a unique course, following the trajectory to a global world during the eighteenth century.


Taking the Eighteenth-Century Worlds MA will:

  • place you in a city whose history is inextricably linked to the rich culture of the eighteenth century as one of Britain’s leading Atlantic ports.
  • put you in touch with the Department of History’s research-active tutors and their expertise in the global world of the eighteenth century and beyond.
  • give you access to unique exchange opportunities in Semester two taken in collaboration with the University of Paris-Diderot.
  • involve you with an active research network via the Eighteenth-Century Research Centre.
