Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Studies, Minor

The interdisciplinary Minor in Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Studies (HGHR) consists of a minimum of 18 credit hours, including a 3-hour introductory course and 15 hours divided among subjects in Holocaust Studies and subjects in Genocide and Human Rights Studies.  

HGHR 2100 (INTL 2100) /  Intro to HGHR Studies is required, but is not a prerequisite for anything; and: it does not matter if you enroll in the HGHR or in the INTL section. Either way, it counts toward the Minor. Intro to HGHR Studies is offered every semester, and once (online) in the summer.

This Web page is the only place to find a complete listing of courses that count toward the major; you will not find them by scrolling through HGHR courses on Banner, which only lists a handful of our classes. Contact John Cox (jcox73@uncc.edu) for more information.
