Erasmus University College is a thriving community of students and staff which is proudly located in the vibrant city center of Rotterdam. In our Liberal Arts and Sciences Bachelor programme we are inspired by a statement by the name giver of our Erasmus University: Quaevis terra patria (The world is my home). In the spirit of Desiderius Erasmus, we work with a cosmopolitan mindset and both feet firmly on the ground. We aim to educate world citizens who are willing and able to take up their responsibilities. To this end we offer a programme that transcends disciplinary boundaries and equips our students to face the complex societal challenges of the future. Our bright and in every aspect diverse students are introduced to a broad portfolio of academic disciplines, from biology and philosophy to economics and social sciences. For an even broader view, interested students can follow the double degree programme with music or arts in our Rotterdam Arts and Sciences Lab (RASL).

Students are in charge of their own learning and doing, of discovering and deepening their passions while delving into the disciplines in our programme. We offer a closely-knit (academic) community and this goes far beyond our majors and minors and the many courses that are available. The needs, drive and creativity of our students are central.
