Welcome to HSTM!
We are a vibrant and active community of scholars. Interdisciplinary by nature, we bring a vital humanistic and historical perspective to bear in understanding the role of science, technology, and medicine in our complex world.
Our faculty are known internationally through their prolific publications, the extensive editorial work for the discipline’s flagship journals, and their participation in global collaborative projects and committees. Our research spans the entire range of the discipline, from Medieval European astronomy to South Asian agriculture, from disability history to the modern social sciences, from the study of science and religion to colonial and post-colonial topics.
We are pioneers in innovative teaching methods and provide our students with practical training alongside deep intellectual engagement. Our undergraduate classes encourage students to explore and develop diverse writing and communication skills from the standard long-form capstone paper to blogs, website engagement, and the production of physical and online exhibits. Our students leave our majors well prepared for diverse careers. Many of our students use our majors as launching pads for further study in medicine and allied disciplines. Our graduate programs provide students with rigorous study in the historical understanding of science, technology, and medicine. Our graduates have a successful record of obtaining jobs in the academy, in libraries, and in museums.
