Prerequisite: HIST 263 (Offered every 3 years/4 credits)

A survey of the major political, economic, cultural and social aspects of the European experience during the early modern period. Beginning with the Protestant Reformation and wars of religion, and continuing through the establishment of the modern state system in the mid-seventeenth century, the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment, the course focuses most on those ideas that informed, challenged and altered the organization of European societies and the interaction of European peoples in a global context during the early modern period. Examples include constitutionalism, absolutism, rationalism, nationalism and imperialism.
