Academic Programs in History and Sociology

The School of History and Sociology encourages students to cross boundaries and avoid silos. In addition to blending the humanist perspectives of History with the analytical methods of Sociology, our curricula consider subjects such as science, engineering, medicine, computing, business, policy, economics, and the environment. Students learn to confront the unfamiliar, to consider the full range of factors at work in human societies and situations, and to appreciate how past informs present.

Students pursuing the B.S. in History, Technology, and Society (HTS) or graduate study in the History and Sociology of Technology and Science (HSTS) master skills of use in a wide range of settings and occupations. Under tutelage of recognized experts, they learn how to frame questions, to gather data and retrieve relevant information, to analyze and process their findings, and to communicate and explain what they have learned in forms accessible to variety of audiences.

HSOC graduates stand apart from most liberal arts students. They combine a broad inquisitiveness and flexibility of mind with the analytical edge commonly associated with Georgia Tech grads. They have dared to be different, and they are ready to make a difference.
