Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The European World 1500-1750’ is a core module which all second-year single honours history students take and is also available to other students as an option. Core modules are designed to complement teaching in more specialised options by providing a broad international context for understanding historical developments, and to develop the ability to study and communicate (both orally and in writing) through a relatively intense programme of seminars, lectures and essay work.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module, students should: a) have further developed their study, writing and communication skills; b) be able to assess critically and evaluate historical analysis and argument; c) have developed a basic understanding of the major social, economic, political, and cultural changes that took place in early modern Europe; d) be able to recognise and evaluate points of comparison between different national political, social, economic and cultural systems; e) be able to employ, where appropriate, electronic resources in the gathering of historical evidence, and construction of an historical argument; f) be able to make critical use, where appropriate, of historical writing in a foreign language.

Timetabled teaching activities

2 lectures and 1 seminar per week.
