Are these affirmations correct ?

I have a diploma in speaking english. I have a diploma/degree in nursing.


I have a diploma/degree in Nursing.

Yes, that is correct.

I have a diploma/degree in speaking english.

While that doesn't appear grammatically incorrect, necessarily, there aren't diplomas in "speaking English" which I have ever heard of. The degree would be in "English Literature", or perhaps "English", or "English Philology". Almost all diplomas and degrees have a certain official form about them. "Speaking english" is just a casual phrase, instead of an official title.
