Master of Arts History

Our students are challenged in ways that enhance their education and provide access to the larger scholarly discussion in the historical discipline. The joint program (with The Citadel Graduate College) features small classes with stimulating discussion and analysis, and the two faculties offer a wealth of expertise in United States history, European history and global history.

The City of Charleston also provides archival resources, research sites and employment opportunities.
