PURA is in need of about 80 graduate students or postdocs to help in reviewing the PURA Applications for Fall 2013. Each reviewer will be responsible...
Applications for graduate admission to the School of History, Technology, and Society (HTS) are submitted online. To apply, please go to: www.grad.gatech.edu/admissions.
Applicants are asked to provide:
For application to the HTS graduate programs your statement should be an intellectual biography and should include your reasons for applying to the MS or PhD program (specify), your interest in the history and/or sociology of technology and science, and your plans subsequent to receiving the degree.
The general application deadline is March 1. Students seeking financial assistance should submit their materials no later than February 1. Students are admitted for the fall semester.
Students who clearly intend to pursue the PhD should apply for the PhD program, regardless of whether or not they already have a master’s degree. All students in the PhD program acquire a master’s degree along the way. This typically involves a three-semester course of studies, though highly motivated students or those with advanced standing may complete the degree in a calendar year.
Students who are interested in the master’s and those who are uncertain if they would like to continue on to the PhD should apply to the master’s program.
Financial aid for graduate students takes many forms. Most full-time PhD students are supported by teaching assistantships, research assistantships, or by research grants and fellowships. More information about these opportunities can be found on our Assistantships, Fellowships, and Grants page.
Students may also receive financial aid in the form of loans and grants. These are administered through Georgia Tech’s Graduate Financial Aid Office.
Though most students enroll full-time, it is possible to pursue the degrees on a part-time basis. Students wishing to attend part-time should be aware that required courses are usually taught just once a year. HTS graduate courses typically meet one day per week for three hours in the late afternoon. Part-time students are not eligible for financial aid.
For additional information about the programs, feel free to contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Professor John Krige, at email@example.com. Applicants may also wish to make direct contact with faculty in whom they have a particular interest, and can do so using our list of faculty profiles and e-mail addresses. Keep in mind that faculty have multiple responsibilities and may take some time to reply.
We encourage prospective students to visit HTS and Georgia Tech and to meet in person with Professor Krige, other relevant faculty, and current graduate students. To arrange a visit, please contact Professor Krige or his administrative assistant, LaDonna Bowen. HTS offices and classrooms are located in Tech’s Old Civil Engineering Building.
