Local History

This course offers the guidance and support of professional historians and although it focuses upon the specific local history of South West Wales, the course also draws upon a general awareness of historical trends and a detailed working knowledge of Welsh history. The practical research element of the course familiarises the students with research strategies and resources and encourages them to undertake their own individual original research based upon their personal interests. Successful presentations could be considered for publication in relevant local history journals or as monographs. The course offers focused support in practical research skills and techniques and detailed analysis of primary material, much of it untapped, which exists in both Welsh and English.

In 2017/18 this degree will be available as a combination of taught elements on campus as well as a distant learning package allowing greater flexibility. We also offer this programme as a Postgraduate Certificate (students complete 60 taught credits) and a Postgraduate Diploma (students complete 120 taught credits)
