Course content

Explore the Holocaust as an historical event and as 'negative heritage' from 1945 to the present. You’ll look at the different ways in which the Holocaust has been explored, discussed and presented. You'll also develop the subject skills to carry out original historical research and build the foundation for postgraduate research.

The National Socialist genocide of the Jews during the Second World War is a focus for many institutes, museums, heritage foundations and education programmes. You'll gain the skills to pursue careers in areas such as Holocaust education, outreach, heritage curation, public history and commemoration.

Our course is designed by the internationally recognised The Parkes Institute for the study of Jewish and non-Jewish relations.
