The Sports, Society, and Technology Program

The interdisciplinary focus of the Sports, Society, and Technology (SST) program brings together sports studies, science and technology, and urban studies, incorporating faculty from across campus, in areas ranging from architecture, public policy, and applied physiology to economics, history, and sociology.

Georgia Tech, the School of History and Sociology, and the Ivan Allen Georgia Tech have recently launched a new program in Sports, Society, and Technology (SST). This initiative helps faculty and students to study sport in the contexts of historical and contemporary culture. Interdisciplinary studies and innovative teaching in SST will help students become leaders in the sport and health industries, higher education, and in our local and global communities. The program also houses the Sports, Society, and Technology Research Center.
