Gratz has added an MA in Holocaust Studies that is not reflected on this site. Only the certificate is listed. I am now writing my thesis in the Gratz Holocaust M.A. program and can recommend this program without reservation. It is not an MA for people who want to continue to the doctoral level in Holocaust Studies as this is structured as the terminal degree.
Virtually all of the Gratz Holocaust Studies faculty are located remotely at other colleges and universities and teach for Gratz on a contract basis. I completed all my course work and never had a professor that was not excellent. Dr. Michael Steinlauf runs the program, and he is exceptional. He is the only faculty member resident at Gratz. While this may seems unconventional -- and it is -- it allows Gratz to find the best available faculty wherever they are physically located and make them available to graduate students. The course work is demanding and rigorous. My peers have consistently been bright, knowledgeable, articulate, and collegial. If you're interested in a terminal degree in Holocaust Studies, you should seriously consider Gratz's program.
Everything thing I learned through this degree has been applicable in my work in a non-profit organization. I feel prepared to offer much more to my current employer and feel confident to enter the job market.
I have learned so much from this program that I apply to my work as a non-profit professional everyday. Most important, my professors have introduced me to the most up to date theories and current authors in the field so I can be at the top of my game.
Living in Turkey where we have no opportunity to have such an opportunity the college is excellent but even if you live in an area where you are able to have such a learning still the college is excellent and more
