The Essex Autonomy Project aims to clarify the idea of self-determination as a guide for policy makers and frontline professionals dealing with the complexities of vulnerable individuals and their capacity to make decisions for themselves.

We offer degrees in both philosophy and art history at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including opportunities to explore interdisciplinary themes across the two areas, and to study them in combination with other subjects.

Our School has an excellent record for student satisfaction and strong research expertise in phenomenology, critical theory and classical German philosophy, as well as renaissance studies, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century art, modern and contemporary art, curatorial studies and art from Latin America.
