B.S. in History, Technology, and Society

The School of History and Sociology

The Bachelor of Science in History, Technology, and Society (HTS) is comparable to traditional liberal arts degrees in history and sociology, but offers unique advantages. It provides a distinctly rigorous and broad-based education by requiring training in humanities, mathematics, computing, science, and social sciences. The program is also distinctive for its focus on global issues related to the origin and impact of technology and science, providing students with the critical tools needed to understand the development of the modern world.

The HTS curriculum allows more free electives than any major at Georgia Tech, giving our students a chance to pursue minor degrees, certificates, and other interests that prepare them for the broadest possible range of careers, from government and politics, to law and medicine, to journalism and business.

Graduates may pursue advanced degree programs in education, history, law, and medicine.
