Our radical approach cuts across traditional boundaries, fostering dialogue between different schools and disciplines.
Philosophy at Essex takes philosophy back to its roots in everyday existential, social and political issues. Art History at Essex takes an approach to the study of art and visual culture that is at once non-traditional and rigorous.
Our MA modules are intensive, taught in small groups by our expert academic staff, and provide a thorough preparation for undertaking independent research and PhD study. Students also complete a supervised dissertation for submission at the end of the course.
"Studying philosophy has been one the most worthwhile and fulfilling things I’ve done. The lecturers and staff within my school are always willing to help and encourage students. From my experience, they invest a good deal of time and energy into creating a positive atmosphere for students to study and settle into."
