The RenaissanceNote - not available for first year entry from 2013

Study Renaissance art, culture, drama, history, languages, politics ...

... in any combination, or just one or two themes.

A pathway in Renaissance Studies opens up many study possibilities by combining modules from several departments.

Have a flexible approach by taking modules looking at different aspects of the Renaissance.

Or combine related modules to form one or more themes. Themes you could create for yourself include:

  • Renaissance history - modules looking at religion (Theology and History Department) could be combined with modules on the history of the period (History Department).
  • Renaissance literature and drama - study literary works and plays form England and Europe by following modules from the English and, if you have suitable languages, from the Modern Languages departments and put them in context by looking at the history and philosophy of the period.
  • Renaissance culture - combine modules on history, art, theology, philosophy, politics.

Add languages

Your programme could also be enriched by a European language (French, German, Italian, Spanish). Most of these can be studied from beginners so it doesn't matter what level you are at the moment.
