History of Science, Technology and Medicine

Course Description

This course provides you with a sophisticated overview of contemporary history of science, technology and medicine. It aims to prepare you for advanced research in this active area, with special emphasis on developing skills of analysis, interpretation and expression.

For those interested in the material culture of science, there are exciting research opportunities in connection with the development of the Museum of the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine.

This 180-credit course comprises taught modules (30 credits each), and a 12,000-18,000-word research dissertation (60 or 90 credits). There are two compulsory modules:

• Current approaches in the history of science, technology, and medicine
• Historical skills and practices

Further modules can then be chosen from a broad range of options.

Tuition consists largely of small-group seminars, sometimes combined with lectures. Assessment is by essays, the exception being the dissertation.
