About the course
Are you interested in family and community history? This course is inspired by the belief that a study of local history can bind together old and new inhabitants. You will use the regional history of southern England to provide a way into the history of wider national and international events. Family history research and autobiographical/biographical approaches allow you to explore your own personal and family history as well as other places and groups.

Areas of study
In year 1 you will learn about studying family history; emigration and immigration in family history; studying community history and politics and change in southern England 1800-2000. The Study Skills module introduces some of the core skills necessary for academic study at a higher level.
Although the DipHE course runs over two years, you can enrol for a Certificate in HE (CertHE) which will consist of any six of the family and community history modules.

Living in Hastings
The historic town of Hastings has been described as the south coast’s best kept secret. The town combines natural beauty with an exciting cultural centre and close knit student community.
The up-and-coming social scene has seen a rise in pubs and bars opening in the town centre. From the quaint taverns in the old town to the slick town centre bars, there is something to suit every taste.
Hastings has a long established thriving art community with a large number of small galleries and art groups. The Electric Palace cinema in the Old Town is a small, independent cinema that also runs the annual ’Shot by the Sea’ film festival.
Alongside the university-run sports clubs, Hastings offers local sports clubs you can join, including football, rugby and netball. Or make the most of the location and take part in rowing, sailing and wind-surfing.
This course is of interest for those who are interested in working in local history collections in public libraries (with appropriate additional professional qualifications), and non-curatorial roles in museums or heritage attractions.
Successful completion of the course may mean that you can progress to a top-up honours degree. From there you would be able to move onto postgraduate studies in librarianship, museum studies or further historical study.
