Nuremberg played a key role in the emergence and establishment of Nazism in the 1920s and 1930s. The field study course HIST 319Z The Third Reich and the Rise of Nazism examines Nazi Germany by focusing on three main components of its rise and fall: policy and law; culture and propaganda; genocide and aggression. Each of these components is related to the city of Nuremberg, and the course is structured around the city’s role in the Nuremberg Laws, the Nuremberg Rallies, and the Nuremberg Trials.
The 1935 Nuremberg Laws codified the Third Reich’s use of anti-Semitism and racism and dictated daily life for Germans. Discrimination and paranoia about “national loyalty” and “Jewish degeneration” fueled the Nuremberg Laws. The Third Reich’s propaganda and its use of performance and pageantry brings us to the Nuremberg Rallies. Hitler had declared Nuremberg the "City of Nazi Party Rallies" in 1933, and its relationship to Nazi propaganda was irrevocably fused together.
This course provides an overview of this terrifying era and the emergence of Nazism, the establishment of the Third Reich, and its eventual defeat by the Allies in World War II.

A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
