The History of Technology, Science, and Environment program at the University of Maryland is the strongest in the Mid-Atlantic region. Graduate students may concentrate in this field while pursuing the M.A. or Ph.D. degree in History. Undergraduates may choose this field as their history major area of concentration while working toward a B.A. in history.
Ours is a lively and flourishing community of students, distinguished faculty members, affiliated scholars within the university, visiting fellows, and speakers and attendees of our monthly Maryland Colloquium in the History of Technology, Science, and Environment . Institutional resources in the field, both on campus and in the greater Washington/Baltimore area, are outstanding.
The key strengths and interests of the College Park group are in nineteenth and twentieth-century developments, particularly in the United States and Europe. We also encourage interests that extend beyond this range, both geographically and chronologically, although instructional offerings may be limited.
