Are you fascinated by current societal and economic challenges? Want to broaden your perspective and assess the impact of globalisation?
If so, the brand new Bachelor of Social-Economic Sciences is just what you are looking for. This unique, cross-disciplinary study allows you to develop competencies related to socio-economic policy, business, economics, sociology, mathematics and statistics. The English Bachelor in Social-Economic Sciences will be organised for the first time in the academic year of 2021 - 2022 by the Faculty of Social Sciences (in collaboration with the Faculty of Business and Economics).
Multidisciplinary, international programme
​In this unique, cross-disciplinary study you develop competencies related to sociology, business and economics.
In the first year, the programme’s broad curriculum will introduce you to several different fields, helping you to discover where your interests lie so that you have the freedom to pursue a Major in Economics, Sociology or Business in the second and third year. These electives determine the Master’s programmes in which you can subsequently enrol.
The explicit international nature of the study will ensure you become part of a multicultural classroom. This way, you will be prepared to take on any venture, both during and after your studies.
Let's shape the future
After your Bachelor’s programme, you can enrol on one of our English Master’s programmes in Economic Policy, Political Science or Business Economics. If you are proficient in Dutch, there are a number of Dutch Master’s programmes you could also consider.
Our graduates occupy decision-making positions that have a strong impact on society. They are consultants, managers, academics and advisors who work for international NGOs, start-ups, governments, banks, consultancies, accounting firms, etc.
