Certificate in Holocaust Studies

The Certificate in Holocaust Studies is offered for students pursuing the MA and PhD in the Humanities through the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at UT Dallas. Students who wish to pursue the certificate must do so in coordination with requirements for the degree plans for the Graduate Program in the Humanities.

Graduates of this 15 credit hour certificate will have a critical understanding of the Holocaust as well as modern Jewish culture, the history of anti-Semitism, and the major contemporary philosophical, aesthetic and analytical responses to this major event.

In order to begin work toward the certificate, each student must complete a registration form, and is required to be advised each semester by Dr. Nils Roemer, Director of the Ackerman Center. In addition, each semester, certification students must also meet with their academic advisor assigned by the program. Certificates can only be awarded to those students who have their advising forms completed by both the School of Arts and Humanities and the UT Dallas Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies. The certificate will be awarded in addition to the diploma earned in the student's chosen field after graduation.
