Warwick History is recognised internationally as a centre for innovative and influential research and is consistently ranked among the best history departments in the UK. Religion and society were inextricably linked in the structures and culture of early modern Europe. 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.
Warwick has a particularly strong concentration of Renaissance and Early Modern scholars who work on areas in the world from England to China, and many places in between. A core module provides a critical perspective on the complex religious, social, political and cultural history of the period, while an Early Modern Seminar gives you the opportunity to engage in current academic debates with other students and academics. Many on this degree also engage with the lively programme of lectures, seminars and conferences hosted by the Department’s European History Research Centre.
The programme will also help you to acquire the conceptual and practical skills needed to conduct PhD research in early modern history.
All our MA courses can be followed on a part-time basis over two years. For further information, please contact the MA Director, Dr Sarah Hodges.
