On starting the MA, I found that the course was everything I'd wanted it to be. British Museum curators taught the core modules, and in effect the Museum's showcase Enlightenment Gallery, which displays and interprets objects as eighteenth-century people might have made sense of them, became a vast classroom. King's College tutors taught the optional modules, and many of these were themed - the self, the body, liberty, melancholy, and so on - and ranged across a variety of media - conduct books, novels, philosophical treatises, diaries, portraits and more - to demonstrate how a number of disciplines informed the emergence of each particular idea or experience. The MA organizers were also really good at showcasing eighteenth-century London - there were trips to Kew gardens and Sir John Soane's house museum, amongst others, which was an unexpected bonus.
Aside from the course, the facilities at King's are very good. Its beautiful library is a two minute walk away from its main Strand campus, it has a big and cheap student bar with a view of the river, and it's next door to the Courtauld Institute and just over the river from the British Film Insitute on the south bank, two of my favourite places in London.
