    Goldsmiths offers progammes leading to the MA, Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate, Graduate Certificate, all in History of Art. What's the real difference? Why choose one or the other? How do employers or academics view the non-MA options?

    (After looking at the website, I think the difference is the MA is full-time coursework and a dissertation. The PG Dipl is the same full-time coursework without the dissertation. The PG Cert is part-time, evening coursework and no dissertation. I cannot quite discern exactly what the Grad Cert is. Any clarifications or corrections would be appreciated.)
