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 2018; 15 December 2017 for applications to the Psychology of Genocide program; and 31 December 2017 for applications to the Geography and Genocide Program.
