International Bachelor History

Erasmus University Rotterdam

Bachelor Undergraduate Rotterdam

Course description

Qualification Bachelor of Arts
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary This programme takes a unique approach by focusing on how history shapes present-day societies. You focus on modern history and political, cultural, social and economic issues.
Course description In this programme, you will acquire a thorough understanding of how changes and continuities in the past influence our daily lives and learn to explain the crucial connection between past and present. You primarily look at history and historiography through a social, cultural, political and economic lens. This means that you study history more thematically and less based on historical periods – as is usual in other history departments. You focus on themes such as the growth of main ports, inequality in the world, trends in the fashion industry, and the history of international relations. We approach these themes from a long-term perspective, which enables you to establish a link between singular (series of) events and the bigger picture.
