European studies

Europe: the question of our age.

European studies

There has never been a more important time to study Europe.

At Essex we connect the dots between politics, culture, language, history and law to understand the complex network we call Europe. With such a diverse landscape demographically and politically, we delve into a debate of the future of Europe, while attempting to understand what has shaped Europe as we know it today.

We value a flexible and interdisciplinary approach to studying European studies and you have the option to study a modern language as part of your degree. 

Why study here?
  • You are taught by a team of international experts in a range of subjects.
  • Each of our courses enables you to study abroad at an excellent European university of your choice.
  • You have the opportunity to study one or more modern European languages as part of your degree.
