Early Modern European History

Graduate Study in Early Modern Europe

About the Program

The Early Modern European history program is recognized as a leader in the field. Organized around an introductory reading course  (Readings in Early Modern History), topical colloquia taught by distinguished scholars, and a year-long history seminar, the early modern European specialization draws upon the history department's strength in cultural, social, intellectual, women's and gender, and comparative and global history. Students find their work enriched by the graduate program's parallel specializations: Early America, Atlantic cultures and the African diaspora, medieval history, and modern European history. Designed for highly qualified applicants, graduate studies in Early Modern European history provides an excellent foundation for academic careers in teaching and research.
