Your Essex degree is unique

Education often puts people into boxes. You’re a biologist, a film-maker or a criminologist. But the world’s most pressing problems have no regard for disciplinary boundaries, and we don’t want you to be limited by them either. Our high level of optionality means that you can make your degree yours, by choosing modules that build specialist knowledge and skills in the areas you wish to pursue.

Being interdisciplinary creates almost limitless opportunities and the freedom to explore. It is an opportunity to combine your interests and make your contribution really count.

What our courses offer

All our courses are characterised by opportunity, flexibility and choice:

Any course of study includes compulsory modules (also known as core modules), but we also give you the opportunity to try subjects you may not have come across before, like linguistics or philosophy, through optional modules.

As a student at Essex you also have the unique opportunity to study a new language for free alongside your course as part of our award-winning Languages for All programme.

Learn languages
