If you choose to study history, you’ll cover local and regional history at an advanced level.

Key features of the course

  • Provides enhanced career opportunities, academic achievement and personal fulfilment
  • Focus on English literature or local and regional history
  • Good preparation for further study at masters and doctoral level.

Career relevance

Studying for a diploma course will provide you with an opportunity to build on skills acquired at undergraduate level. It will further develop your capability to read and analyse large amounts of written material and enable you to apply your skills through the production of a project. These transferable skills are in demand in many areas of the public and private sector, such as advertising, marketing and public relations; educational, charity and development; or government and public administration.

Completing the diploma will give you a worthwhile qualification in its own right, and you can also count the credit towards one of our MAs, providing you take account of the unique study rule.
