OverviewThis module examines events in Europe during the age of the Reformation, viz. from Martin Luther's 95 theses in 1517 to the peace of Cateau-Cambrésis in 1559. Besides studying ecclesiastical change, the module will focus on the impact of the Reformation on European politics and society, Germany and England in particular. There will also be an emphasis on popular responses to the Reformation, as exemplified by the German Peasants' War and the English revolts of 1536 and 1549.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
