This unique MA Program is dedicated to creating and nurturing a new generation of Holocaust researchers and educators. In addition to rigorous multi-disciplinary course work with leading researchers, our students gain professional experience through research assistantships, internships in Israel and abroad, seminars and study tours. Students also have the opportunity to hear from Holocaust survivors and as well as build relationships with survivors through volunteer programs. Our programs hopes to help foster dedication to the field of Holocaust Studies.
