Areas of Study

The History of Science Program is especially strong in the following areas of specialization, because of the concentration of faculty working in the area, the availability of material resources in support of the field, and by institutional linkages with other departments and programs in allied specializations.

 

Dual MA-MLIS Program

The School of Library and Information Studies and the Department of the History of Science have established a Dual MA/MLIS Degree Program.  The purpose of this program is to provide a course of study for those individuals planning for a career in librarianship as a science librarian, as a curator of a rare book and manuscript collection in the history of science/health sciences, or as a public historian or archivist in the history of science.  Full-time students in the Dual Degree Program normally complete both degrees in three years.  For more information about this program, click here.
