This degree has been designed to allow graduates to complete their own independent research within the field of Holocaust and Genocide, as well as develop knowledge about key research skills and practices. You’ll work alongside many active regional and national Holocaust memory networks and will have the opportunity to present your work at our History Postgraduate Conference and additional conferences around the region. The National Holocaust Centre and Museum is the UK’s first centre dedicated to the remembrance of victims of the Holocaust. You’ll get the unique opportunity to collaborate in research projects with the museum. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake a summer placement in London, supporting the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust in its preparations for Holocaust Memorial Day. It provides excellent preparation for undertaking a PhD and gives students the freedom and support to shape their own work in the area of holocaust and genocide. Our students have gone on to successfully gain a fully-funded Vice-Chancellor’s PhD bursary, and have been awarded Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) doctoral funding through the Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership.
