The Arts & Sciences Cross-School Initiatives section of the online prospectus hosts programmes which span multiple disciplines across the College. King’s is home to nine Schools of study, of which four are included in Arts & Sciences, they are the Schools of Arts & Humanities, Social Science & Public Policy, Natural & Mathematical Sciences and Law.
Cross-School Initiatives draw on the benefits of crossing academic boundaries and collaborative working, bringing together teaching from a number of King’s Schools.
Three Global Institutes have been established at King’s since 2008 – the Brazil Institute, the China Institute and the India Institute – each providing a focal point for interest in these countries across a range of academic disciplines. Promoting an understanding of Brazil, China and India that fully recognises their role as global powers, the three Institutes coordinate and develop research capabilities and programmes of study at King’s, while also building links with relevant organisations in education, the cultural and creative sectors, business and government. Through these activities, and as part of the College’s broader internationalisation strategy, the Institutes aim to contribute to a growing interdisciplinary interest in Brazil, China and India among both students and academics at King’s.
The MA in Contemporary British History is taught by staff within the newly formed Institute for Contemporary History, led by Professor Pat Thane, drawing on the expertise of staff within the Institute, the Department of History, the School of Law, and the Department of War Studies, in subjects such as political history, social and demographic history, economic history and international history.
