The Centre for the History of the Sciences (CHOTS) at the University of Kent offers two taught masters programmes of interest to HSTM graduates.
These programmes benefit from the input of a total of ten teaching staff whose research concerns the history of science, technology, medicine or environment. CHOTS has a vibrant community of staff and postgrads (as attested by its hosting of the BSHS postgrad conference this year).
The MA History of Science, Technology, Environment and Medicine covers a wide variety of historical topics.
The MSc Science, Communication and Society is a more vocational course but remains grounded in critical humanities perspectives about the inter-related processes of the making and consumption of scientific knowledge. Students interested in the history of science or STS choose the MSc for its focus on practical and marketable skills, and for the route that it provides between an academic study of the history of science and related careers (museums, policy, lobbying, NGOs).
Graduates of these two programmes have gone onto PhDs at UCL, The Open University, Tokyo, Manchester and Kent, as well as science communication careers.
