Engage in Meaningful Dialogue

The Holocaust and Genocide studies certificate will give you the tools to critically understand and interpret the Holocaust and other acts of mass murder and racial extermination. The curriculum provides important historical, literary, political, and ideological contexts for understanding the causes and mechanics of genocide. In addition, you will gain perspective from the experience of those who survived and the effects that movements that lead to genocide have upon victims, bystanders, upstanders, and perpetrators. The 12-hour certificate program will help current educators develop their own pedagogy through increased understanding and engagement. In addition, students in political science, history, and the humanities will benefit through the encounter with the breadth of scholarship in Holocaust and Genocide studies.
