Program description

Bachelor in Humanities (honors)

The bachelor in humanities at Erasmus University College (EUC) focuses on varying subjects, from philosophy and history to media and communication.

When pursuing a major in humanities, you'll focus on identity, differences, and diversity in a globalizing world. Through means such as conceptual analysis of contemporary arts, modern literature, and media, you'll delve into concepts of identity, philosophical anthropology and history.

A student with a background in humanities is always able to put a situation into different perspectives. Students will learn to view events with a historical and ethical dimension, giving the ability to make more nuanced and accurate judgments.

Majors in the humanities department will explore courses such as:

  • Modernity: from Enlightenment to Rationalisation
  • Late Modernity: from Globalisation to Mediatisation
  • New Media & Society
  • A Brief History of Citizenship
  • The Renaissance
  • Global Art Markets

Erasmus University College (EUC) empowers students to face the challenges arising from an increasingly globalizing and interconnecting world, technological advances and environmental change. The humanities program offers a small-scale, intensive and residential approach to Liberal Arts & Sciences.

Erasmus University College mission:

‘At Erasmus University College we expect you to use your knowledge, insight and creativity to unravel today’s complex scientific and social issues ensuring your actions are informed and your decisions are taken with ample consideration for the context.’
