New two-year interdisciplinary MA Stream in Holocaust Studies

January 9, 2017 - by Dr. Charlotte Schallié, University of Victoria

The Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Victoria is now accepting applications for the new two-year interdisciplinary MA Stream in Holocaust Studies.

Students benefit from seminar-sized classes, a newly-designed set of foundation courses, and a dual focus on academic and professionalization skills in our disciplines. Our Holocaust Studies Stream offers a thesis and a non-thesis option and includes a required practicum in Canada or in Europe as well as exchange opportunities in Berlin and Budapest.

Interlinking scholarship with community-based field research—in effect drawing on the strengths of both academic research and experiential learning—our graduate stream will provide individual learners with key competencies designed to prepare them for a career in education, public history, museum and/or archival work, human rights education, journalism, public advocacy, and law. Our program will also provide students with a solid interdisciplinary foundation for further PhD studies in Holocaust Studies, Genocide Studies, or Human Rights and Equity Studies.
