Course content

A certificate in Holocaust and Genocide Studies has been developed to help scholars pursue the study of the Holocaust and other genocides and to seek answers as to how they may be prevented. Because this study involves more than the history of the development of genocides, various departments are supplying courses that provide greater understanding of the forces leading to them.


A Certificate of Studies requires 15 credits.

Core modules:

• HIS 545 Holocaust
• HIS 546 Genocide in Modern History

Students will also select four electives. Please visit the website to see what electives are available on this course:

Learning Outcomes

Communicate effectively at the graduate level (in both oral and written presentations) their advanced knowledge of history in reasoned arguments supported by historical evidence and an appreciation of multiple causes, effects, and perspectives.

Locate, distinguish between, and assess primary and secondary sources, and to analyze and interpret a variety of written, oral, visual, and material evidence at an advanced level (Information Literacy).
