HIST 5394. Early Modern Europe. 3 Hours.

Students examine the fifteenth through eighteenth centuries and consider how the foundations for Modern Europe were established amid the dynamic, if not wrenching, transformation from a medieval way of life characterized by religious concerns, kingdoms, a predominately agrarian economy, and a rigid social order, to a modern one marked by science and secularism, sovereign states, a commercialized and industrializing capitalist economy, and a more socially diverse and mobile world. Students explore major recent historical interpretations and/or conduct research in primary sources.
Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
