How to Use Lessons from the Past to Enlighten Today's Students - 

The purpose of this summer school is to provide students with the opportunity to collaborate with an international cohort to study Holocaust history. Students will then use these “lessons from the past” to examine, investigate, and critique problems in today’s societies (social inequality, discrimination, refugees) in order to formulate a final project to convey these lessons to a target audience.

In this international project, students will work in small teams comprised of both their Dutch and U.S. peers. Excursions to Amsterdam (Anne Frank Home), Former Concentration Camp Bergen Belsen, and Berlin (Holocaust Museum) will be part of this summer institute.


Students will enroll in the Honours Holocaust Rememberance course through Hanze University of Applied Sciences. This 3 credit hour course (6 ECTS) will require academic department approval to transfer to USC Upstate as HIST U493 - Topics in European History.

Program fee includes: program participation, accommodation during the program, social activities, and use of a bike.
Program fee does not include: cost of obtaining travel documents, meals, international phone service, personal expenses, round-trip airfare, or mandatory travel insurance.

Early planning and application is very important in preparation for going abroad. Students may start their application for studying abroad at any time. However, submitted applications will be reviewed only during the application cycle of the respective program. Passport information is not required to start your study abroad application; although a valid passport is required to take part in any international program. 

To begin your application, click the APPLY NOW tab, and you will be prompted to login in using your USC Upstate username and password.

There are two phases in the USC Upstate study abroad application: pre-decision and post-decision. Students who complete the first half of the application will then be asked to confirm or withdraw their application. Students who confirm their participation will then have access to the post-decision portion of the application. All application requirements in both phases of the application must be completed in order for an applicant to participate in a study abroad program. 

Before paying the non-refundable application fee and deposit, applicants are encouraged to first complete all other components of the pre-decision application.
