MA/COGS in Holocaust Genocide Education

MA in Holocaust and Genocide Education

 

This graduate program fills a much-needed gap in higher education.  Currently, fifteen states in the U.S. have Holocaust and genocide education mandates, and federal funding has been earmarked to improve Holocaust education nation-wide. 

 

The MA in Holocaust and Genocide Education bridges a divide between more traditional programs in Holocaust and Genocide Studies and graduate programs in Education in order to help graduate students consider what Holocaust and genocide education can look like across diverse settings.  This program is designed for those interested in Holocaust and education broadly, from classroom teachers and curriculum developers, to museum educators, and those interested in working for nonprofits and NGOs. 

 

In the MA in Holocaust and Genocide Education, graduate students will gain deep content knowledge and the ability to implement effective teaching strategies through customized coursework and an applied capstone project.​
