What Will You Learn?

Discover one of the most significant and fascinating periods of English history – the English Civil War. Actually a series of three wars that tore the British Isles apart, the English Civil War led to two extraordinary events in the country’s history – the execution of a king and the first commoner to rule the nation.

The English Civil War Diploma Course explores events leading up to the wars, the key individuals and institutions that played a part, the wars themselves, and the changes they instigated.

Learn about the three separate wars that made up the English Civil War and how they were fought between the three kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland during the 1600s. Explore the differences in political and religious ideas, and various conflicting and influential personalities that ignited tensions – sparking the flames of war.

Discover the major protagonists and institutions that led the way during this time of great violence and upheaval, and how each was trying to forge a new path for English rule and life – King Charles I, Oliver Cromwell, the Scottish Covenanters and the New Model Army.

The English Civil War Diploma Course also highlights the causes and run-up to the war, as well as the period directly after the war when, for the first time in English history, a king had been executed and a commoner ruled the country.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Understand what caused the English Civil War and the role that religion played in this
  • Learn about key people during this period and their involvement in the wars
  • Examine the parliaments and constitutions that formed during this period
  • Explore why Charles I was put on trial and executed
  • Become familiar with the legacy of the English Civil War
