Students in the Master of Arts in History program at the College of Charleston are challenged in ways that enhance their education and provide access to the larger scholarly discussion in historical scholarship. The program – offered jointly with The Citadel Graduate College – features small classes rich in stimulating discussion and analysis.
The City of Charleston provides ample archival resources, research sites and employment opportunities, including the largest archive of Jewish heritage in the Southeast and the Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture. The history faculty and our partners at The Citadel offer a wealth of expertise in United States history, European history or global history.
