Program: New MA in Nineteenth-Century Studies at King’s College London

Studying the Nineteenth Century at King’s College in the heart of London

The MA in Nineteenth-Century Studies at King’s College London is a new interdisciplinary degree, set to begin September 2011, that focuses on the history, literature, visual culture, built environment and legacy of the nineteenth-century world.  Taught by specialists from History, English and Geography, the programme offers an exceptionally wide range of modules. Students take a core module called Doing Nineteenth-Century Studies, which introduces a range of topics and concepts based on themes such as “nation, state and empire," “the country and the city," and “representing the nineteenth century." They also complete a 15,000-word research dissertation and can choose from more than 15 optional modules. Students can also work as an intern with key cultural and heritage organisations in London including English Heritage, the National Maritime Museum, the Museum of London Archaeology Service, the Post Office Museum and the Royal College of Surgeons Hunterian Museum.  These internship projects are counted as part of the degree.

One bursary of £6000 is available for applicants intending to enter the degree in 2011.
