Genocide & Holocaust Studies
This online program assists current and future teachers, scholars and Holocaust educators to understand the forces behind genocide by engaging in comparative study of genocides of the past and present and by examining the horrific crime of the Holocaust. Educators are provided with the tools needed to present information on the Holocaust and other forms of genocide to students in an age-appropriate and emotionally supportive manner.
This program is also open to anyone interested in studying genocide and the Holocaust to have a fuller understanding of the political, social and religious issues that give rise to acts of genocide, and how the lessons of history inform possible responses to the genocides that exist in the world today.
Opportunities to study in Poland or Israel are available for graduate students who wish to further expand their intercultural understanding of the Holocaust and genocide.
Summer Institute in Israel
Every summer the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education at Seton Hill sponsors a three-week institute for educators at Yad Vashem, the world center for Holocaust research in Israel. Students in this online certificate program are eligible to attend, and to earn three credits toward their certificate. The generous support of Ethel LeFrak makes it possible for the University to offer tuition assistance.
