As part of their partnership with Everton Football Club and to mark the proposed Bramley Moore Dock stadium move, Liverpool Hope is offering two Masters Scholarships in the History of Everton FC with full fees covered.
X2 Master’s Scholarships (MRes) on the History of Everton FC and the History of Everton in the Community
To mark Everton Football Club’s historic transition from Goodison Park stadium to Bramley Dock, Liverpool Hope University is offering x2 one year Master’s Scholarships (MRes) on a) The History of Everton FC and b) the History of club charity Everton in the Community.
The MRes Scholarships will be awarded following a competitive application process open to anyone with a 2:1 undergraduate degree (BA) in History or History and another subject (either achieved, or predicted if currently in final year university study).
Both scholarships are demanding research-intensive posts with an emphasis on disciplined and self-directed research. The recipient would undertake one taught methodologies module as part of the Hope History Masters programme, but the onus would be on research and writing, with the successful applicant required to produce a high quality dissertation of around 30,000 words specifically devoted to one aspect of the History of Everton FC as well as a 6,000 chapter to be published in a new club history.
To be supervised by a specialist in modern history from Liverpool Hope University’s History and Politics team, Associate Professor Bryce Evans.
Potential topics of enquiry include:
The History of Everton FC –
An unconventional or underexplored aspect of the History of Everton Football Club, with preference given to proposals exploring the social, economic, political or cultural impact of the club rather than conventional accounts of great players or managers
