Liberal Arts & Sciences

Why study Bachelor Liberal Arts and Sciences

A small-scale, intensive and residential approach to Liberal Arts & Sciences. You will study many areas of academia and specialise through a Major, with the possibility of adding a minor to it.

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 out:

  • 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.
  • Our education building is a gorgeously renovated landmark right in the city centre of Rotterdam
  • An interdisciplinary bachelor programme 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 ten-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.
  • 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.
At EUC you develop a strong skill-set... this was helpful in the selection procedure for my master in International Management/CEMS
