The Graduate School

A focused, flexible education for your future

As the Graduate School marks the end of another very successful year, we would like to take this opportunity to express our special gratitude to the entire campus community for your strong support of the Graduate School. We look forward to your continued support and partnership in the coming years and wish you a happy, productive and peaceful summer break! We invite you to view the Graduate School "Photo Bucket" for a sampling of the Graduate School events for the 2013-2014 Academic Year.

In college, the goal was to grow intellectually, emotionally and socially. Why should that stop just because you're getting a master's degree? Graduate school does more than increase salaries, it helps people change careers, enter doctorate programs, think more critically and develop unique, advanced skills that are difficult to obtain through undergraduate schooling or on-the-job training.

The Graduate School of the College of Charleston capitalizes on the clear strengths of our faculty and facilities while focusing on the professional needs of the Charleston community. Our 20 master's degree programs and 8 graduate-level certificate programs prepare students to fill important roles in communities as teachers, scholars, environmentalists, historic preservationists, public administrators, and business leaders.

Want to know more about the graduate school at the College of Charleston? Read about our impressive students and our incredible city, or schedule a visit to see it all in person. 

When you're ready, we'll explain how to apply to The Graduate School and how to pay for your advanced degree through scholarships, assistantships and fellowships.
