Program description

BSc Liberal arts and Sciences with majors in Humanities

The majors of the Humanities Department from Erasmus University College are rooted in an interdisciplinary Liberal Arts programme that combines Political Philosophy and Critical Theory on the one hand and Cultural analysis (Literature, Arts, Photography, Film, Television, Social Media, etc.) on the other hand.

Erasmus University College (EUC) offers an inspiring mix of structure and freedom; enough structure to ensure that your bachelor degree is specific and valuable, with enough freedom to let you explore. During your three years here you will spend roughly one-third of your time on required courses and the remainder on pursuing your Major, as well as exploring electives and extra-curricular courses to create your own, unique, three-year programme.

EUC's four departments are:

  • Life Sciences
  • Humanities
  • Economics and Business
  • Social and Behavioural Sciences

Admission requirements

The application period for this programme runs from October to April.

You are admissible to our programme if you have obtained or will obtain a VWO diploma or a foreign equivalent to the VWO diploma (for example, International Baccalaureate, European Baccalaureate, German Abitur, or British A Levels). Additionally, since a number of our courses cover mathematics and statistics, mathematics proficiency is vital for success in our programme. Further, since our programme is completely taught in English, English language proficiency is a strict requirement.

However, your grades only tell us half the story, we also require you to submit a motivation letter and your curriculum vitae (CV) when applying. A matching interview also makes up part of the selection procedure.

Erasmus University College (EUC) offers a three-year Bachelor's degree programme (BSc) in the Liberal Arts and Sciences. Think of the programme as breadth plus depth, where you're challenged to explore many areas of academia to build perspective and connections between disciplines. You're taught in the academic skills to put your knowledge to work. And ultimately you specialize in an area, one of our four 'Majors', that will prepare you for a Master's degree programme or career path in one of 1,000 directions.

Continuing studies

Via the different Majors at EUC, we prepare our students for the entry requirements for a wide variety of master programmes, both at our parent university and at other universities around the world. We cooperate closely with the faculties of Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR).

Career opportunities

Your problem-solving skills, ability to think beyond the confines of a single discipline, and work ethic will make you a stand-out candidate for employers. Connections to large international companies you have interacted with at EUC, the vast EUR and EUC alumni network and your close bonds with classmates from around the world will provide a foot in almost any door.
