MA - Master of Arts
University of Birmingham
Immerse yourself in past and present debates about researching, remembering and commemorating the Holocaust and other genocides.
Co-taught by staff in History, Modern Languages and Theology and Religion, this interdisciplinary programme is aimed at recent graduates, teachers or professionals with NGO’s who want to specialise in this thought provoking area.
You have the opportunity to approach the subject from a variety of perspectives with a choice of optional modules - some which have a more traditional, historical focus and others which examine the cultural, social, political and religious afterlife of the Holocaust and other genocides.
We are able to offer a unique combination of expertise in the study of the Holocaust and of genocide across a variety of disciplines, including historical studies, conflict and war studies, memory studies, literary studies, translation studies, and film studies.
In addition to taking modules directly related to the Holocaust and/or genocide, you therefore also have the opportunity to take alternative disciplinary approaches and study modules that are relevant to, but not directly related to, the topic.
Why Study this Course?
Taught by experts – the departments contributing to this course are home to outstanding academic staff who are leading in their fields and will support you throughout your time at Birmingham.
Small classes – teaching on the masters-level modules involves mainly small-group seminars allowing you to have a focused discussion about the learning materials.
Friendly and relaxed atmosphere – staff are always happy to talk through work and provide additional feedback on academic performance.
Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert.
Your degree will provide excellent preparation for your future career, but this can also be enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University and the College of Arts and Law.
