It’s a fact: Place matters. At the College of Charleston, we offer over two dozen graduate programs that leverage the abundant natural resources found throughout the South Carolina Lowcountry to enrich our students’ experiences. The coastal marshes of Charleston serve as living laboratories for scholars in our marine biology and environmental studies programs, while historic houses, archaeological sites, and museum collections offer unique opportunities for history, historic preservation, and African American studies students. Public administration and arts management students learn from and work with experts rooted within the strong nonprofit and arts culture in Charleston. These are just a few examples of the programs that take advantages of the people and places in a historic and forward-thinking port city. Regardless of the program you choose, you will explore new concepts with exceptional professors who love to teach. With an average class size of 12 students, you will get the individualized attention you deserve.
