Gratz College launched a new Master of Arts degree in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, the only one of its kind that can be completed entirely online.
The new program is particularly aimed at teachers, for whom it will provide a tool for combatting racism and intolerance, often accompanied by violence, pervasive in our schools. Full-time public and private school educators will benefit from a substantial tuition discount. The program is also directed at museum educators, social workers, and members of secular and religious community organizations.
More after the jump.
The program consists of 36 credits (12 courses), including two required courses, and a guided thesis or final project. Courses may be chosen from among over 20 electives, including a study-tour of Jewish Poland in July, 2012. An 18-credit Graduate Certificate in Holocaust and Genocide Studies is also available.
