The Eighteenth-Century Studies minor at Indiana University (Bloomington) offers concentrated study of the inter-connected cultures of a period extending from the late seventeenth to the turn of the nineteenth centuries. The minor is open to all graduate students. The minor requires 12 credit hours in courses approved by the Program in Eighteenth-Century Studies; courses for the minor must be taken in at least two different departments, including the student's own. (Exceptions will only be entertained in unusual circumstances.) At least one approved seminar (usually at the 700-level) is needed to complete the minor.
All students must take the PhD minor gateway course, a broad introduction to interdisciplinary work in the eighteenth century. In 2007 and 2010 this course was taught by Mary Favret (English) and Dror Wahrman (History) (see their L680/H699 syllabus for 2007). They are next offering this course in the autumn of 2012-2013.
