Academic year 2017-2018

Courses at ESSB


The course descriptions can be found by clicking on the course name. For most courses the timetables are incorporated in the course description. For some of the courses this wasn't possible. Therefore a separate link to the timetable is made.

Attention: In blocks 1 and 2 of the academic calendar of ESSB, minors are offered. These are clusters of courses (15 ECTS) that are related to a certain topic. The courses within the minor do not overlap in the time schedule. Minors of Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences are only open to exchange students and freemovers of this faculty. Likewise ESSB exchange or freemover students cannot take minors at other faculties.
