Welcome!
The UW-Madison Department of the History of Science is one of the largest and oldest academic programs of its kind in the United States. It offers an undergraduate major and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in History of Science, Medicine, and Technology. Our program is known for the strength and diversity of its areas of study and its warm, collegial environment. All historical aspects of science, medicine, and technology receive attention – from their internal development to their broader social contexts, including their relationships with institutions, philosophy, religion, literature, and visual and material culture.

In Memoriam, David C. Lindberg, 1935-2015
