Join us on Monday 8 February from 6pm-8pm (UK time) for a virtual open evening for the Undergraduate Diploma in English Social and Local History. This will give you the chance to meet the Course Director, Dr Jonathan Healey, and discuss the course.

Please email if you wish to attend.

The Undergraduate Diploma provides a stimulating introductory survey to the social history of England and the development of English local communities from the early medieval period to the late 20th century.

The wide historical span of the course gives you scope to engage with periods in local and social history you may not yet be familiar with. We will also guide you through some of the major sources you are likely to encounter, helping build your skills of critical interpretation and your ability and confidence in undertaking independent research.

Taught mainly through residential weekends, the course makes excellent use of Oxford’s historical resources, with activities including a tour of the city’s pre-Reformation college chapels and work on 18th-century crime and punishment at Oxford Castle.
