Each year the graduate program in the History of Science and Technology at Johns Hopkins University attracts a strong cohort of students with diverse backgrounds.
The program has long been particularly strong in the history of medicine and science for early modern Europe; medicine, science, and technology in the 19th- and 20th-century United States; history of public health and colonial medicine; and Russian and Soviet science. New areas of great activity include Asian science and medicine, history of public health, and the history of 20th-century biology and biomedicine. Graduates of the program work at a variety of universities, colleges, research institutes, and museums.
The graduate program combines a broad introduction to historical scholarship with training in the skills needed for specialized historical research in the history of science, medicine, and technology.
Students work in a variety of settings, including research seminars, proseminars, and individualized tutorials, as well as gaining teaching experience in the department’s undergraduate courses.
There are also opportunities for students to teach their own courses in the undergraduate program at the Krieger School. Prospective students are encouraged to contact individual faculty prior to applying to discuss areas of mutual interest and learn more about the department.
