Study at Oxford


The History of Science, Medicine, and Technology (HSMT) at the University of Oxford is part of the History Faculty, one of the world’s largest history departments.  Oxford HSMT is uniquely broad in our chronological and geographical expertise: we cover HSMT from the Ancient World to the modern era, and do so on a global scale.  We have particular expertise in the history of global and colonial medicine, and in the history of science and technology from 1500 to 1900; we benefit from close links with Museum of the History of Science, the Pitt Rivers Museum, and the Ashmolean Museum.  More details on the Oxford Centre for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology can be found here.

The general deadline for PG applications (one- and two-year Master’s; Doctorate) is January. See here for more information.

We encourage those interested in applying to contact us with any questions (  Applicants are also encouraged to contact potential supervisors.
