Liberal Arts & Sciences (EUC)

Bachelor in Liberal Arts & Sciences

A small-scale, intensive and residential approach to Liberal Arts & Sciences. You’ll study many areas of academia and specialise through a Major in one of our four departments.

Why study a Bachelor in Liberal Arts & Sciences at Erasmus University College in Rotterdam?

The Netherlands is home to a number of high-quality University Colleges, and we are often asked for help in understanding the differences. Here’s what we can tell you about how Erasmus University College (EUC) stands apart:

  • EUC’s active approach to education is called Problem Based Learning; we keep group sizes to about 12 students for tutorials, so you are always intensely involved in your education.
  • Working and studying in a gorgeously renovated landmark building in the very heart of a big city.
  • Four academic departments offering numerous Majors, spanning from Economics & Business to Humanities to International Relations and more.
  • A residential requirement to live together with your fellow first-year students from all over the world; helping build bonds in year one but leaving students independent in years two and three. The housing could not be more central. Opposite the city hall, it is in the heart of dynamic Rotterdam and only a 10 minute walk from EUC.
  • Close cooperation with more than 30 masters programmes at Erasmus University, including a Pre-Med programme, to facilitate the connection upon graduation from EUC’s bachelor programme.
  • An intensive programme wherein you meet credit requirements already during your core courses, leaving the Winter and Summer terms for extra credits, re-sits, or study trips.
  • A unique balance of choice and structure, in which about one third of your courses are Academic Core requirements, one third are Major requirements, and the rest is up to you.
  • A double degree with the arts. Together with our partners Codarts and Willem de Kooning Academy, we offer our students a chance to get a bachelor degree in performing arts or fine arts next to a bachelor degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences.
