At Essex we investigate what connects people with each other, as well as what divides them. We consider every aspect of our daily lives, from how we relate to politicians, celebrities and friends, to how we define ourselves, our families, and others.
You experience a lively, informal environment with many possibilities to pursue a variety of topics including:
- The impact of computer games on crime
- Mass media and modern life
- The art, film and personal testimony of war
- Practical research methods, including designing interview schedules and surveys and handling cultural data
