James British Early Modern History MA I joined King’s after a three year BA course in History at the University of Wales, deciding that the demands of an MA course needed a great urban location with access to a huge variety of resources. The academic reputation of King’s enticed me and I haven’t looked back since.
Studying in London is absolutely amazing, both in terms of nightlife and academic strength. I was immediately impressed not just by the tutoring but also by my fellow students, and the environment provided of hard but rewarding work definitely instills a great sense of confidence in the education received, and I regularly attend seminars at the Institute of Historical Research, taking advantage of the hub of research available in London.
I made sure to save money in advance for London, but I also quickly started privately tutoring to ensure I could take advantage of the vibrant life in London. After completing my MA course, I intend to stay in London for another year while working in any number of careers which King’s reputation for excellence opens, and I would definitely recommend King’s for any prospective student who wants the ultimate experience in life and education, where anything is possible and everyday there are new opportunities to push yourself to a new level.
Niall O'Flaherty Early Modern History MA The MA in Early Modern History is a world-class programme of historical study delivered by scholars working at the cutting-edge of research in their fields. Our research areas include the Netherlands and Francophone culture, European and Transatlantic Intellectual History, Gender History and the History of Sexuality, Imperial History and British Social and Political History.
I teach the module From Hume to Darwin: God, Man and Nature in European Thought. As with all modules on the Early Modern History MA, this option is research-led, intertwining with my own work on the changing nexus between theology, science and social thought in Europe at the beginning of the nineteenth century.
Our students benefit from unrivalled access to archives and libraries. The wide range of seminars on offer in the Department of History and at the Institute of Historical research makes for a particularly vibrant postgraduate community. I’ve always found the Department to be a particularly friendly place, which can count for a lot when you’re engaged in intense intellectual pursuits.
