Welcome to Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB)
The 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.
Sociologist Professor Pearl Dykstra from Erasmus University Rotterdam has been elected as an ordinary member of the first governing board of the International Science Council (ICS).
This week we received the sad news that one of our former professors, Christopher Pollitt, passed away after a long period of illness.
