Teaching Certificates

Go deeper and become an educator

This program is designed to offer a certificate for practicing teachers in the growing field of Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

Our certificate will draw upon the resources and faculty of Yeshiva University. resulting in a unique and interdisciplinary investigation of the Holocaust of European Jewry. Focusing on the murder of six million Jews and million of others by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, the program will offer an exploration of this watershed event in the history of humankind in conjunction with the study of other genocides that have occurred since the early 20th century up to the present. This program is ideal for educators looking to go deeper in their knowledge of Holocaust and Genocide Studies and help shape the future of remembrance.

At a time when survivors of the Holocaust are fewer, knowledge is declining (evident by the recent Schoen poll conducted in the winter of 2018 claiming that over 40% of millennials are lacking the most basic knowledge on the Holocaust) and incidents of hatred and antisemitism are on the rise both on a national and global scale, it is the task of the Fish Center for Holocaust and Genocides Studies to train a new generation of educators, scholars and civic leader on this critical subject.

Program Structure

A single, 3 credit course from core courses - selections include: The Destruction of European Jewry, Cultural Responses to the Holocaust, Genocide in the Modern Age: Armenia to Darfur

A single, 3 Credit in History

Two courses (6 credits) in Education
