The Diploma in History seeks to analyse and explain the development of human society over time. The history modules are very broad, covering a range of chronological periods; the historical experience of different countries, major themes in human society and the processes of cultural change. The Diploma aims to introduce students to the nature of historical knowledge, the key role of history in shaping social and political attitudes, the significance of history in building our perceptions of ourselves and others, major historiographical controversies and debates, along with recent advances and changes in the study of history.
The Diploma will appeal to those with a keen interest in history and the historical developments of the past, over a number of centuries, from the perspective of different countries. It will also be of interest to those working within heritage centres and the tourism industry, who may require a knowledge of history and cultural issues in their working lives. Equally, it may be of interest to teachers, both primary and secondary, who wish to refresh their knowledge of history for classroom teaching.
