Additional Features of the Program

These guidelines are not meant to be and in any case cannot be rigid, and they should be considered a supplement to the more comprehensive Guidelines for Graduate Study in History. We expect, furthermore, that every graduate student in history of science will have a highly individualized course of study. Any prospective or current graduate student who wishes further information and advice about the fit between the Program’s guidelines and his or her particular circumstances can direct their questions to the Director of Graduate Studies for the History of Science at 107 Dickinson Hall, History Department, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544 (Telephone 609-258-6705).
