Educating about genocide and mass atrocities
Genocide, mass atrocities, crimes against humanity and their prevention stand at the core of the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Home to a uniquely rich undergraduate program and a landmark doctoral program, the Strassler Center is the first and only institute of its kind. Since it was established in 1998, it has gained international standing as the sole program to train students for Ph.D. degrees in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies. The Center’s growth and development demonstrate that a small research university can achieve excellence and broad regard with a flagship program.
Offering the only program of its kind designed to train students for Ph.D. degrees in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies, the Strassler Center takes great pride in its accomplished and renowned faculty and staff members.
