About

The online Advanced Diploma in Local History is one-year part-time course to help you develop advanced skills in researching local, regional and social history. 

Overview

About this course

This one-year part-time course provides training in key concepts and methods of historical studies. It is delivered entirely online, so you can work at home with access to the course material, your tutor and fellow students.

This course will help you improve the key skills you need for historical research, especially the manipulation of information using spreadsheets and databases, and it will teach you how to use what you have learned to produce good, scholarly historical writing. With the help of your tutor, you will produce your own piece of local historical research. Some of our past students’ projects have been developed into articles, for scholarly journals.

Equivalent to study in the third year at a university in the UK, the Advanced Diploma is good preparation for a higher degree such as Oxford University’s part-time MSc in English Local History or master’s programmes at other universities. 

Who is this course for?

As the course is delivered entirely online, you can join it no matter where you live. There are no formal entry qualifications, but you should have a lively interest in the localities and communities of the past, and some experience of local history. This might have been gained through a course, through the study of family history and genealogy, or investigating local, rural, public or labour history using sources in libraries and record offices.
