Welcome to Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB)
ESSB is home to a vast diversity of study programmes and scientific disciplines: Public Administration, Pedagogical Sciences, Psychology and Sociology. In addition, the Erasmus University College, IHS, and two research institutes RISBO and DRIFT are linked to the faculty. Our education is small-scale and based around Problem Based Learning (PBL). Being connected to the professional field is another characteristic of our study programmes.
The book Imagined Societies: A Critique of Immigrant Integration in Western Europe written by sociologist prof. dr. Willem Schinkel won the Book Prize in the Study of Citizenship 2019.
DRIFT has been very successful in attracting European research grants from the Horizon 2020 and JPI Europe programmes.
The prof. dr. J.A.A. van Doorn Chair/Fellowship is a collaboration between the Department of Public Administration and Sociology at EUR and NIAS-KNAW.
