Ivan Allen College graduates are distinct in their abilities to bridge technical and non-technical realms, complex problem solving, and science and technology savvy (Source: 2013 Alumni Value Survey). Students at the Ivan Allen College acquire the technical expertise characteristic of Georgia Tech graduates and the contextual understanding that is the hallmark of fine liberal arts education. The History and Sociology of Technology and Science doctoral degree program trains exceptionally qualified students for a variety of professional careers.
The Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts collaborates with additional colleges within the institute to offer graduate students an option to pursue additional studies with an interdisciplinary approach. Two certificate paths are currently available to graduate students in any discipline wishing to demonstrate additional competency or focus in their field. Open to all graduate students, STS seeks to understand how science and technology shape society and culture and how society and culture, in turn, shape the development of science and technology.
Consistent with the larger mission and reputation of Georgia Tech, the Ivan Allen College graduate programs are focused on rigorous professional and research practices. Advanced degree students become part of a vibrant interdisciplinary community of scholars who are engaged in ground-breaking research that is redefining the boundaries of liberal arts studies, often encompassing the technological and scientific realms.
