Early Modern History - MA (Full-Time/Part-Time, 2019 Entry)

This programme explores religious, social, economic and cultural developments in the early modern world, including the strains created by soaring prices and population, and heightened social mobility. The first term core module Themes in Early Modern History provides a critical perspective on key themes and introduces you to a range of expertise at Warwick. This runs alongside a module that explores theories, skills and methods. In the second term you have a choice of two taught modules, each one taking a different topic and exploring it across time and space.

These will help you place your early modern interests in religion, gender, empire, consumption or medicine in a comparative framework as well as deepen your acquaintance with relevant ideas and approaches from outside early modern scholarship.
