The three centuries of Romanov rule in Russia transformed an Asiatic state into a European power.

The course will examine the complex but fascinating history of Russia under the Romanov dynasty. Students will make detailed examination of the reigns of Russian rulers such as the early Romanovs, Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Paul, Alexander I, Nicholas I, Alexander II, Alexander III and Nicholas II. The course will also examine the Napoleonic wars, serfdom, Church reforms, political reforms, efforts of industrialization and modernization, foreign wars and treaties, Pan-Slavism and Pan-Russian philosophies, as well as the emergence of Socialism.
