Course summary

On our four-year BA Philosophy and Art History (including foundation year), we work with you to develop your subject-specific knowledge, and to improve your academic skills. You receive a thorough grounding in these areas during your foundation year (known as Year Zero) to prepare you for a further three years of undergraduate study at Essex. This course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of study. During your Year Zero, you study three academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module. Not just quiet contemplation – philosophy has great practical value. You study philosophy and art history together in order to appreciate the relationships between them with a degree of critical awareness. Our unique approach enables you to develop skills which are now vital in a society dominated by the visual image and visual forms of communication.You will develop the skills you need to transform your excitement about art, architecture and visual culture into the ability to uncover new insights about the material you study. Our particular strengths in ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of religion and European philosophy will give you a solid grounding in philosophy.
