What you'll study

This course allows you to pursue advanced research in the field of Holocaust and Genocide. You will have the unique opportunity to collaborate in research with the National Holocaust Centre and Museum, based in Nottinghamshire.

You will be active within regional and national Holocaust memory networks and have the chance to present your work at our History Postgraduate Conference, and a range of other conferences around the region.

You will also benefit from participation in Holocaust related teaching sessions on our MA History course.


The majority of the marks awarded for this course are for the dissertation. Students are free to select their own dissertation topic. In recent years, topics have included the use of anti-Semitic vocabulary in Nazi propaganda, and Jewish reactions to Nazi persecution between 1933 and 1938.

While the focus of study has been the Holocaust, we are also keen to encourage work on other genocides such as those in Cambodia and Rwanda. Students are invited to consider a wide range of options, and our team of experts are happy to offer advice.

You will have an individual supervisor allocated when offered a place on the course. Dissertation tutorials will take place between you and your nominated supervisor. The supervisor will offer advice on developing appropriate study methods and provide feedback on drafts of the dissertation.

Careers and employability

This course enables students to pursue postgraduate research under the support of the academic team in the School of Arts and Humanities.

It provides excellent preparation for undertaking a PhD and gives students the freedom and support to shape their own work in the area of holocaust and genocide. Our students have gone on to successfully gain a fully-funded Vice-Chancellor’s PhD bursary, and have been awarded Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) doctoral funding through the Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership.
