CFA: Doctoral Program in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies, Strassler Center (Worcester, MA)
Deadline: December 15, 2016
The Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts, U.S.A. seeks applications to its doctoral program in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies. Applications from any country are welcome.
The Center is a forum for education and scholarship about the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, and other genocides around the world. Dedicated to teaching, research, and public service, the Center trains the Holocaust historians and genocide studies scholars of the future—the next cadre of professors, teachers, Holocaust museum directors and curators, and non-governmental organization and government agency experts-about genocide and genocidal situations. Our interdisciplinary faculty strength now includes the expertise of professors in eight departments.
Together with the History Department, the Strassler Center offers a unique doctoral program in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies (Ph.D. in History). We also offer two interdisciplinary Ph.D. streams: the Psychology of Genocide (Ph.D. in Psychology) stream draws upon the Psychology Department’s expertise in social psychology; the Geography and Genocide track (Ph.D. in Geography) considers the landscapes and spatial dynamics of genocide and mass violence.
The deadline for applications to the Holocaust History and Genocide Studies program is 15 January 2017; 15 December 2016 for applications to the Psychology of Genocide program; and 31 December 2016 for applications to the Geography and Genocide Program. Further information and the applications are online:
Doctoral students receive a full tuition subvention and fellowship support in the form of an annual living stipend and research bursary throughout the five years of the Ph.D. program. Questions may be directed to email@example.com or directly to
