Master's Programme in Holocaust and Genocide Studies

The Master's Programme in Holocaust and Genocide Studies is an internationally-oriented education programme that will enable you to understand and independently analyse genocide and other forms of mass violence in specific historical, political and cultural contexts. The education takes place in a markedly interdisciplinary environment that includes theoretical perspectives from a variety of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. After completing the education, some of our former students have pursued an academic career, while others have progressed to employments in government administration, museums, diplomacy, the EU administration, or the private sector.

Exam re-takes

In case you do not earn a passing grade on a final exam, you will have the opportunito to register for an exam re-take, which take place twice a year. Usually, they are planned for the second half of August and January. It is the student's responsibility to find out about the dates and register for the re-take by contacting head teacher for the course in advance. It is the teacher who will decide when the exam will take place within the re-exam period and one can sign up for two specific exam retakes at a time. Students who receive a passing grade (G) on an exam are not eligibile for a re-take.

Re-examination deadlines
  • 20/12: Deadline for registration
  • 14–25/1: Re-exam period
  • 20/6: Deadline for registration
  • 19–30/8: Re-exam period

Cheating and plagiarism

What is cheating? Chapter 8, Section 1 of the Higher Education Ordinance states that "disciplinary action may be taken against students who... by prohibited aids or other means attempt to deceive during examinations or when academic work is otherwise assessed." The text of the law uses the term "deceive" to designate cheating and plagiarism (which is a form of cheating).

The teacher who suspects a deliberate attempt at deception shall inform the studies director as soon as possible. The teacher and director of studies together decide whether the matter should be pursued further.
