The University of Charleston, South Carolina

A focused, flexible education for your future

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