HGS 497 Updated 18 April 2008 2 LEARNING OUTCOMES: Students will demonstrate: • knowledge of the Holocaust, its historical and precipitating factors, and its legacy; • understanding of the concept of genocide, as distinct from mass murder, and the circumstances under which it can occur, its precipitating factors, and its legacy; • an understanding of relevant ethical issues such as prejudice, discrimination, and racism; • the ability to think critically, and write and speak effectively, about issues related to genocide and the Holocaust. RATIONALE: An Internship provides an opportunity for a highly motivated and talented student to cooperatively engage with a Holocaust or genocide-related institution to the mutual benefit of both the student and the institution. The resulting product, which should remain open and loosely defined, may be the development of a specialized survivor database, the creation of a new curriculum, or the organization of a document collection. RESOURCES: Any member of the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Council may develop an internship in cooperation with a committed student. The Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies will serve as a point-of-departure for internships; however, a student might be engaged by a society, resource center, museum, or foundation external to Keene State College.
