The graduate certificate in European History explores the rich antiquities of the medieval church, the rise of the Papacy, and the Renaissance. This online program also surveys the growth of humanism, prominent city-states, the monarchies of the Holy Roman Empire, religious wars, and the Catholic Reformation. By examining the early European history, you will discover how these fascinating events shaped the economies, industries, and cultures of the modern world. Special emphasis is placed on the economies, industries, societies, and culture of the U.S., Great Britain, Japan, and Germany during World War II.
Many university faculty members teaching our courses are published historians or military leaders who bring unique perspectives and relevant research into the classroom. You’ll also connect and interact online with other students who share your enthusiasm for history.
