Course content

Our Eighteenth-Century Studies course is co-taught by lecturers from different departments across Arts & Humanities, with some sessions also led by experts in museums and galleries across London, making it a degree which looks broadly and deeply at the eighteenth century. The core focus on ideas, objects, texts and arts enables you to explore the Enlightenment through concepts of race, gender, class; intellectual networks and material culture; visual arts and literature, and encourages you to use the unique, diverse and rich collections in central London, all close to King’s, including the National Portrait Gallery, the Foundling Museum, and Sir John Soane’s Museum.
