After completing the Master's programme, students will have obtained knowledge and an understanding of the origins and development of genocidal processes, as well as their aftermath: how societies deal with the consequences of mass murder and genocide, and the moral and political implications. In light of society's increasing interest in this subject, this specialisation will give you better career prospects than you would have with only a Bachelor's degree. Historians can find employment in politics, journalism, at an NGO, at an international court of justice, at a library archive, in a museum or a publishing house. An increasing number of historians are also working in government and the private sector.
The programme thoroughly prepared me for the career in academia that I had always envisioned.Catharine Aretakis, alumnus Master’s Holocaust and Genocide Studies Read the interview
