The History and Sociology of Technology and Science doctoral degree program trains students in advanced scholarly research on the historical, social, and cultural dimensions of science and technology, past and present.
In keeping with current scholarship in the field, the program is interdisciplinary. The faculty includes primarily historians and sociologists. Students emerge with strong training in both fields, and they also develop a unique perspective that transcends conventional categories. While many faculty members’ research programs center on science and technology, the program is also enriched by the presence of specialists in American, European, Asian, and Middle Eastern history, and in economic and historical sociology and sociology of race and gender. Though highly interdisciplinary, the program is housed in a single academic unit—Georgia Tech’s School of History, Technology, and Society (HTS)—and thus enjoys close relationships among faculty and students. The HTS community also benefits from being located in the liberal arts college of one of the country’s premier engineering universities. Students and faculty may take advantage of the Tech library’s outstanding collection of technical literature and also have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in the Schools of Public Policy, International Affairs, Urban Planning, and Economics. Tech’s proximity to Emory University, Georgia State, and the Atlanta University Center is also an asset. Students in the PhD program come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including history, sociology, and science- and engineering-related fields, and recent PhDs have gone on to both academic and professional careers.
