The Humanities (Liberal Arts and Sciences) major of the Humanities Department from Erasmus University College are rooted in an interdisciplinary Liberal Arts programme that combines Political Philosophy and Critical Theory on the one hand and Cultural analysis (Literature, Arts, Photography, Film, Television, Social Media, etc.) on the other hand. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Humanities (Liberal Arts and Sciences) course curriculum from Erasmus University College is structured around four recurring themes – technology, economy, culture and politics – that are combined in innovative courses rooted in our intellectual heritage. Students thus gain extensive knowledge of, and learn to critically reflect on, the historical processes and social developments as well as the institutions and interfaces that have shaped today’s world and continue to shape the 21st century.

Key facts:

The major Humanities combines Political Philosophy and Critical Theory on the one hand and Cultural Studies and Medium Analysis (Literature, Arts, Photography, Film, Television, Social Media, etc.) on the other.

Moreover, the intellectual versatility, the capacity to reflect on and see through complex problems and the reading and writing skills acquired in and through the humanities will benefit our students in whatever position they may find themselves later on in their lives. As medical doctors they will be trained in assessing ethical dilemmas; as managers they will be able to critically reflect on their own judgments and those of others; as CEOs or entrepreneurs they will be able to formulate inspiring visions while taking their feasibility into account; and as politicians they will be able to convincingly convey their message and find flaws in the opponent’s rhetoric. An education in the Humanities is therefore pivotal to any professional in our fast-changing and highly complex 21stcentury.
