Holocaust and Genocide Studies is a dynamic field of research and education of the highest international relevance. The goal of the Master’s Programme in Holocaust and Genocide Studies is to give you the ability to independently understand and analyse the phenomenon of genocide and other forms of mass violence in their historical and cultural contexts. Empirical knowledge and sharpened analytical abilities have become sought-after skills for a variety of potential employers.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The history and memory of the Holocaust is central to this field of study, but you will also study other episodes of genocide, genocidal violence and other forms of mass violence and their historical, political and cultural contexts.
These violent events have usually occurred in conjunction with major economic, social and political crises, mobilisation of ethnic identities, formation of new states, colonial processes and modernisation. While studying different cases of genocide and mass violence closely, you will also learn methodologies and analytical perspectives from various disciplines.
The Master’s Programme in Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Uppsala University is a cross-disciplinary course of study drawn from:
- political science
- cultural and social anthropology
- international law
- peace and conflict studies
- history of ideas
During the programme you can expect to:
- independently and critically identify and analyse problems that are of central importance to the field of Holocaust and genocide studies.
- learn methodologies and analytical perspectives from various disciplines.
- gain empirical knowledge and sharpened analytical abilities that are sought-after skills for a variety of potential employers.
You have a Bachelor’s degree within the humanities or social sciences and the Bachelor’s thesis you wrote gave you experience in the appropriate identification and use of theories and methods. You are extremely motivated and willing to take a lot of responsibility to form your own educational experience. Ideally, you already have a rather clear idea about what subject to base your Master’s thesis on.
Your social skills are good and you are both able and willing to communicate your ideas and thoughts in written and spoken English. You also understand that studying the Holocaust and episodes of genocide can be a very emotional experience and that honesty about your own feelings and respect for others is important.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts (120 credits) with Holocaust and Genocide Studies as the main field of study. After one year of study it may also be possible to obtain a Master of Arts (60 credits).
