  • Description:
  • HASTS selects a small number of highly qualified students for doctoral study. A master's degree is not offered. Some HASTS students have training in science or engineering, while others have a background in history, sociology, anthropology, and environmental studies, among many others. Some, but not all students enter the program having completed an advanced degree in another discipline.

  • Admission Information:
  • Students with an undergraduate degree from any academic discipline are invited to apply, but they should express long term interest in science and technology in their historical or social dimension.

    The deadline for applications is January 1st for admission the following September (for example, January 1, 2010 for September 2010 admission). The Program does not admit students for the Spring term.

    Applications to the doctoral program must include:

    Application for Graduate Admission
    transcripts of all previous academic study
    a statement of objectives (on page 7 of the application)
    three letters of evaluation
    Financial Statement (included in application; required for international students)
    GRE scores (institution code 3514; department code 2703)
    For non-native English speakers, either a IELTS or TOEFL score (see the FAQ Page for more information)
    $75.00 application fee
    a writing sample (such as a research paper or a chapter from a thesis)

  • Financial Aids:
  • The MIT Energy Fellowship, made possible by generous industry sponsors of the MIT Energy Initiative, matches each Fellow with the industry partner who provided the funding for their first year of study, and includes membership in the Society of Energy Fellows at MIT, an organization within the MIT Energy Initiative established to foster a network of students dedicated to meeting the world’s future energy needs. The Energy Fellows program is designed to attract and support graduate students with a special interest in energy. There is no formal application process; instead, students who have indicated an interest in energy in their statement of purpose will be considered for the fellowship by the department into which they have been admitted.
