In partnership with the Pardee School of Global Studies and the Institute on Culture, Religion, and World Affairs (CURA), the Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies also offers a graduate certification program in Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Studies. 

The Graduate Certificate in HGHRS complements graduate study in history, political science, law, literature, and religion. It serves as preparation for careers in social and governmental service. Working closely with an advisor, Master-level and PhD-level students select four courses across disciplines to advance knowledge of the history, ethics, law, and public health analysis of the Holocaust, comparative genocides, and human rights. To be awarded the certificate, students also complete advanced research, through papers, thesis, or dissertation work, in the field of Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Studies. Students must already be enrolled in a graduate degree program at the university in order to complete the certificate.
