French Literature & Culture MA
After thoroughly enjoying studying French literature at undergraduate level I decided to stay at the university that had given me such a wonderful undergraduate experience.
I chose the MA in French literature and culture because not only does King’s have an excellent reputation for French research but the course also covered a wide variety of modules including literature, theory and philosophy. The core course particularly appealed to me as it covers a wide variety of theory which has shaped French literature and culture, therefore giving every student a great basis upon which to further their studies and pursue an academic career.
I specifically chose the MA because of the modules in Contemporary French Women’s writing and Francophone literature which correspond to my desire to conduct research in these areas. I also chose to stay on at King’s because the academic staff are not only very knowledgeable but are also very helpful and keen to discuss students’ ideas with them.
I also enjoy participating in research seminars across all departments, wherein fascinating ideas are always aired. Moreover, I am involved in the Staff Student liaison committee which gives me an insight into what it is like to be an academic. I also continue to work as a student ambassador, a job which has taught me many skills, and through which I have met many interesting people.
I feel confident that my overall experience at King’s, and my MA course itself, will prepare me for the career in academia which I desire, and, within such a competitive field, an MA from King’s is a significant asset.Find out what it's like as a student of French Literature and Culture
