Leadership & society
If social networks track our lives, who tracks them? How can we study the impact of multiculturalism across our world? Who can teach us about the trauma of war?
Future leaders need a broad education that includes the arts, humanities and law in order to argue and reflect upon issues of justice, ethics and power. Students will develop these skills by focusing on values, interpretations and meanings. A King’s education should be available to the best and brightest, regardless of financial background.
The School of Arts and Humanities is one of the UK’s most prestigious and comprehensive faculties of its kind. The School has built up a number of strong and unique teaching and research collaborations with some of the world’s premier cultural organisations. It has pioneered new developments in the Arts and Humanities, including Digital Humanities, Culture, Media and Creative Industries, and Medical Humanities.
The Dickson Poon School of Law, currently ranked fourth amongst top UK law schools, will focus on transnational law; the ways in which the law extends beyond national frontiers, the ways it can be applied to all persons, businesses and governments that perform or have influence across national borders.
The Cicely Saunders Institute for Palliative Care leads in research that feeds quickly into end-of-life care. The first such academic institution in the UK devoted to this field of study, the Institute ensures people live better, with dignity and the least amount of suffering to the end of their lives.
The King’s Cultural Institute will undertake projects that exploit King’s potential as a creative crucible, bringing together organisations and artists that would not normally work together and, through the College’s rigour, knowledge and expertise, develop new ideas or forms of engagement.
Knowledge should be available to the brightest young minds, regardless of their background. King’s is proud to offer widening participation programmes and scholarships to students who show exceptional academic potential.
With your help, we can provide world-class education for tomorrow’s leaders.
