Did you know?

WWU is the only public university in Washington state with a minor in Holocaust & Genocide Studies. Our program provides a solid foundation for further study of mass atrocities past and present, including the Holocaust. It prepares students to be knowledgeable, successful, and engaged members of society.

Complementing any major, students with an HGST minor (24—25 credits) may want to pursue careers in fields such as communications, education, health & medicine, or law & public policy. The minor will prepare you to work in and across disciplines to identify and creatively solve key societal problems, both local and global.
