The foundation of the Holocaust Studies Program at The University of Texas at Dallas is the curriculum offered by the School of Arts and Humanities on the Shoah. Taught by Dr. Zsuzsanna Ozsváth, the interdisciplinary structure of the program affords students the opportunity to design their degree plans and undertake subsequent research on the Holocaust from the historical, political, religious, philosophical, socio-cultural, or artistic perspectives. This wide-ranging approach furnishes students with a broad base from which they are able to build their Master's Portfolio and Dissertations in the field of Holocaust Studies.
