After a treasured four years as an undergraduate at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, I had a hard time staying put. I moved every year for five years, living in places as diverse as New York city and Stockholm, Sweden. I had always known I would return to the academy, and when it came time to settle down, I knew it would have to be in a place that I found as thrilling as I found comfortable. For me, this place is London.
I have always aimed to place myself in the most excellent academic environments possible so that I might enrich my studies not only with the finest caliber of scholars, students, and libraries but with all the cultural advantages of being located in a cosmopolitan metropolis as well. King's couldn't fit my criteria more perfectly. Not only does King's often host conferences and seminars which offer essential intellectual stimulation and community, but the university itself is located within a stone's throw of cultural institutions like the BFI Southbank and the Tate Modern.
The M.A. program in Film Studies at King's was a tremendous experience in that it offered excellent modules in diverse and fascinating topics taught by very accomplished and approachable professors, and it attracted a stellar group of students that made my first year in London blissfully cinephilic.
I loved King's so much that I continued on to do another M.A. in Critical Methodologies before beginning my PhD in the Film Studies department! My PhD research on experimental animation benefits incalculably from my being located at King's in London. I couldn't recommend it more highly!
