The Sports, Society, and Technology (SST) Program and Research Alliance seek to create interest and increased visibility for the interdisciplinary study of sports at Georgia Tech.

This interdisciplinary program is housed in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts and is administrated through the School of History and Sociology. We offer a 15-hour undergraduate SST minor with high-quality courses and support and promote Georgia Tech faculty research related to sports.
