King’s College London

UNC’s collaboration with King’s College London, a research-led public university in the heart of London founded in 1828, exemplifies a commitment to building robust and multi-level global partnerships. In 2005, UNC and King’s College London established the UNC-King’s Strategic Alliance, initiated between UNC’s College of Arts and Sciences and King’s School of Arts and Humanities and School of Social Science and Public Policy. The alliance has expanded to become one of the most ambitious partnerships between U.S. and U.K. universities, including longstanding and emerging joint activity in teaching, research, and other initiatives in diverse fields across both universities.

A vibrant undergraduate student exchange has taken place since 2002, with more than 750 students participating. Graduate students benefit from short-term visits, student-organized workshops, and joint doctoral committees. Individual cooperation by faculty members has grown into broader collaboration including conferences, colloquia, joint research projects, and publications.

A wide range of areas are involved, including American studies, anthropology, art, classics, digital humanities, dramatic arts, English, geography, German, global studies, history, information and library science, law, medieval studies, medical humanities, music, philosophy, political economy, political science, religious studies, and war studies. Collaborations in health affairs are also being developed in dentistry, medicine, nursing, and public health.
