TAKE NOTE! Holocaust & Genocide Studies has just launched a crowd-funding campaign to support its new HGS internship program. The campaign runs through April 15.
Help our graduate students take action on behalf of the marginalized and vulnerable in distressed regions of the world. Who better than graduate students in Kean’s acclaimed Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies program? How do these students get this opportunity? Your contribution to the Genocide Awareness Internship Fund. Your support and our training and supervision is the perfect collaboration to promote human rights action and research.
Donate $25 or more if possible at keanlift.kean.edu. It's a great cause for our students, the human rights organizations that want them, and the vulnerable who desperately need their help.
The Department of History is one of Kean University's oldest and most productive programs of study and has been a part of the instructional component of the institution since its inception in 1855.
The Mission of the Department of History, in support of the Missions of Kean University, the Division of Academic Affairs, and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS), develops emerging scholars capable of thinking critically, communicating across cultures, researching, analyzing, writing and reasoning within the perspective of historical literacy and a societal context.
The main office of the Department of History is in Townsend Hall room 117. Other faculty, the office of Asia Studies, and the World History Center are located in Townsend Hall room 107.
