The M.A. in Holocaust and Genocide Studies at University of Huddersfield, made up of four modules and a 12,000-word dissertation is set up to analyse and discuss the Holocaust and other genocides, particular with an eye to cultural representations and the impact of historic genocides on current international legislation and conflict resolution.


About the Holocaust and Genocide Studies course at University of Huddersfield

The course thus attempts to build a bridge between the past and the present on more than one level: looking at historic genocides (such as the Holocaust) and how this influenced our current stance on issues such as conflicts and racism; but also by discussing the experience of the victims back then and now, for example by comparing child refugees in the 1930s and today.

We will be running the MA in close collaboration with the Holocaust Learning and Exhibition Centre and will have the opportunity to utilise their collections and benefit from input by their team of Holocaust educators, curators and public engagement specialists.


Possible career paths include work in the heritage sector (exhibition, testimonies and memorialization), NGOs and charities, government agencies (for example the departments in the Foreign Office dealing with humanitarian issues), or business consultants (corporate social responsibility, e.g. companies being sued for dealing with human rights violators).

In addition there are the wide range of careers routinely taken up by History graduates across all sectors of the economy, but especially law, publishing, administration, education and business.
