Combined PhD Department Requirements

Early Modern Studies is here understood to be global in scope and manifested variously across geographic and cultural contexts; the study of this period is necessarily comparative and interdisciplinary.

The current partner departments for the combined degree are: English, History, Comparative Literature, Classics, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese, Music and the History of Art.

We are in the process of exploring additional partnerships with the following departments: Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, East Asian Languages and Literatures, the History of Science and Medicine, and Religious Studies.
