We are world leaders in political science, asking difficult questions to find important answers. Where will the next civil war start? Can we predict social unrest from tweeting patterns? We’ll help you understand how the forces that shape our world really work.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses train you to be fearless and independent, to question everything and to draw on the broadest possible range of facts and ideas. Some of the biggest names in the field work at Essex, giving you unrivalled access to the best minds in politics. As well as conducting ground-breaking research, your lecturers advise political parties, governments and international NGOs.
If you want to study with the best and are prepared to challenge your own opinions to uncover the truth, welcome home.
We encourage our students to post blogs about their experiences and opinions; if you’d like to receive more information regarding posting a blog, please contact us for more information.
