Course summary

Our BA Liberal Arts (including foundation year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. Our compulsory English language and academic skills module supplements your academic subjects. Liberal arts is for true intellects who want to indulge their curiosity for knowledge. In ancient Greece, liberal arts were essential for a citizen in order to take an active part in civic life. This included participating in public debate, defending yourself in court and serving on juries. The aim was to produce a virtuous, knowledgeable and articulate person. Today, liberal arts at Essex combines subjects to make an intensely rich and stimulating course. Our interdisciplinary approach allows you to choose the range of modules and combinations of disciplines from humanities, arts and social sciences to suit your own interests and curiosity.
