International Bachelor History

Institution Logo Erasmus University Rotterdam

This programme takes a unique approach by focusing on how history shapes present-day societies. You focus on modern history from a political, cultural, social or economic perspective.
During the International Bachelor History, you will acquire a thorough understanding of how changes and continuities in the past influence our daily lives and you learn to explain the crucial connection between past en present.

You primarily look at modern history (from 1500 and onwards) through a social, cultural, political and economic lens. This means that you study history more thematically (e.g. the history of migration and citizenship) and less based on historical periods – as is usual in other history departments.You will learn to answer questions such as: How do games like Call of Duty perpetuate myths about the war, but also how they influence our thinking about the past? Why did so many European countries become rich while African countries have remained poor? What is the influence of movies such as Schindler’s List and Inglorious Bastards on our historical thinking? And how is diversity within football teams partly due to the colonial past of the country?
