ABOUT HST

The unifying theme across our diverse Bachelors, Masters, and Executive programs is an emphasis on understanding, engaging, and enabling people in the many contexts in which they work and live – as consumers, employees, leaders, citizens and members of families and communities.  We believe it is critical that HST graduates possess not only deep expertise within their chosen area of study, but also the ability to think, work, and innovate across disciplinary boundaries. Our graduates also gain the cross-cultural awareness, entrepreneurial mindset and behavioral skills necessary to work effectively in the teams and organizations in which they pursue their careers.
