67797| University of York| PG Diploma in Heritage, History and Fabric of the Parish Church|

This diploma offers a unique opportunity to gain detailed and practical knowledge of the history, use, care and conservation of parish churches. The only course of this type in Britain, it offers a part-time, online, distance-learning course leading to a postgraduate diploma. The course format offers you the opportunity to study in your own home at times and a pace to suit you, extensively supported by tutors and part of an active online community.

The course enables those involved in the design and implementation of conservation techniques or those wishing to enhance their understanding of local sites of importance to develop new areas of expertise. It is equally valuable for lay staff, volunteers and those with a general interest in the parish landscape. Our resources include contributions from over two hundred academics and practitioners meaning that you have access to the finest current international research and ensuring Continuing Professional Development opportunities. The modules, each developed by specialists in their field, allow you to choose directions to suit your interests and needs.

The PGDip is offered by the Department of History and The Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture as a distance learning programme of two years’ duration. Content is delivered through a combination of the key-learning resource, the multi-author DVD The English Parish Church through the Centuries, digital readings and tutor-led podcasts. Delivered via the University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), the course requires access to a broadband internet connection, but does not require you to be online at specific times, making this the ideal learning environment for those with busy lives. The VLE-delivered course allows you to experience a wide range of media both for study and for assessment, providing the opportunity to see, hear, explore in 3D and debate issues and questions, all from your own home or workplace. All students will have access to a dedicated Course Tutor, a students’ area and will receive regular feedback on assignments. The PGDip also includes the opportunity for an optional field trip here in Yorkshire in the second year.

Programme of study

The course is taught across two years and consists of two core and two optional modules. In the first year students undertake a two-term core module on Sources and Issues for the Study of the History of the Parish and the Parish Church, followed by a choice of modules on Churches and Churchyards or Parish and Community.
In the second year students choose from Worship and Ritual or Use, Care and Conservation of Parish Churches, followed by a core two-term study project researching a church or churches of their choice. Students are supported throughout the course by module tutors and the Course Tutor, ensuring the online experience is a rich and collaborative one.
