Holocaust and Genocide Studies Programs

Holocaust and Genocide Studies Programs at PLU

The Holocaust, other genocides, and mass crimes against humanity are phenomena that command serious study and civic engagement. PLU is home to an academic minor in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, an endowed chair in Holocaust history, an annual conference on Holocaust education, summer research fellowships for students studying Holocaust questions, and much more. Collectively, these programs and opportunities reflect PLU’s prominence as the home of internationally recognized Holocaust scholarship. Explore our opportunities for learning about the hatred and destruction that infect human history and haunt our world today, and for engaging deeply with scholars and activists whose work promotes understanding, healing, and peacebuilding.
