Holocaust and Genocide Studies (M.A.)
Kean University’s M.A. in Holocaust and Genocide Studies offers an exceptional opportunity to work with graduate faculty as mentors and meet with visiting scholars and changemakers.
One of only four graduate programs of its kind in the country, the Kean program provides students the opportunity to convene with faculty in small, intimate gatherings, debating the critical questions that matter.
Scholarships and project stipends are available for students, and most students complete the program in 18 to 24 months..
The knowledge that I have gained so far is overwhelming. I have spent years learning the history of genocide, but the museum has given me the tools needed to apply that material to work experience. I learned how to speak to survivors and collaborate with educators."
