The subjects we study at school are tiny pieces of an infinite jigsaw.
You have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.
You’re fascinated by a variety of subjects and require flexibility with your studies. You crave the freedom to think freely and imaginatively, whilst maintaining an expansive range of knowledge through your degree.
Liberal Arts at Essex draws on multiple disciplines in order to discover new knowledge and reach a deeper understanding of the world we inhabit. Your degree will encourage you to embrace your broad way of thinking whilst honing your critical awareness and handing you the tools you require to change the world for the better.
Interdisciplinary study was a founding principle of Essex. It is built into the very fabric of our campus.
Our famous University squares are designed to encourage knowledge transfer and collaboration. We're sharing new ideas and challenging the status quo from an interdisciplinary perspective - rounding on our expertise in history, literature, politics, law and human rights, sociology, art history and philosophy.
Studying Liberal Arts as a postgraduate means you can approach issues of global importance, such as environmental sustainability, indigenous rights, digital worlds and more, with support and insight from a wide variety of subject areas.
