Program Information

School: University of King’s College
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: History, General
Description: EMSP is an ideal programme for students who want to delve deep into the structures of today’s culture and look at their points of origin. Because the programme is broad and flexible, students gain an overall understanding of the period, but are also able to focus on areas of interest to them. By taking courses in EMSP, students gain insight into the nature of the Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation, the Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment and Romanticism.

Because EMSP is a King’s Combined Honours Programme, it is paired with the study of another arts or science honours discipline. Many students use this as an opportunity to study another subject in an early modern context, such as early modern theatre or literature, but the link isn’t necessary—these studies can complement so many other fields, from politics to music, from history to science.
