New MA program in Holocaust Studies

New MA program in Holocaust Studies

The University of Haifa is pleased to announce the opening of the MA program in Holocaust Studies that will be taught in English, for 2012-2013 academic year.

This is the only graduate program in Holocaust Studies that is taught in Israel and is unique in its multidisciplinary curriculum and approach. It is dedicated to the creation and nurturing of a new generation of Holocaust researchers. Its aim is to provide them with a well rounded curriculum from a wide variety of disciplines and subjects (history, social psychology, anthropology, genocide and international law, literature and more), diverse methodologies and essential languages.

The program is an international one, gathering students from all over the world, for 3 semesters in Israel. Our collaborations with Holocaust archives in Israel, Germany and Poland offer the students the opportunity visit those archives in the framework of study tours, to conduct research based on primary sources and to acquire expertise in writing research papers.

The program is headed by Prof. Arieh J. Kochavi, head of the Strochlitz Institute for Holocaust Studies at the University of Haifa, a prolific and prominent scholar of World War II, diplomatic history of the 20th century, refugees and displaced persons in Europe and prisoners of war.
