Social Sciences and Humanities

Social Science and Humanities (SSH) is a broad and diverse domain. In the Netherlands, there are at least 26 main scientific disciplines within the domain. These disciplines can be categorised in four sectors of similar size: Law, Economics, Social- and Behavioural science, and Humanities. The first two sectors are relatively homogeneous, with a limited amount of (sub)disciplines. The Social- and Behaviour Sciences have more varied (sub)disciplines, such as behaviour and education science, development studies, pedagogy, psychology, gender studies, public administration, political science, sociology, cultural anthropology, communication science, demography, geography/planning and environmental sciences. Humanities as well is a diverse sector with many disciplines, such as historical sciences, linguistics, literature science, cultural science, religious studies, media studies, and philosophy.
