The Graduate School of the College of Charleston and The Citadel offer a joint master of arts in history providing each student with advanced specialized work in one of three areas: United States history, European history and Asian/African/Latin American history. The program offers qualified holders of the baccalaureate degree the opportunity to pursue historical studies in the midst of some of America's richest historical treasures. The management of the program is vested in a joint program committee composed of representatives of the two history departments, including the director and the associate director. (The latter two positions rotate between the two institutions.) Diplomas and other documents will indicate that the program was a joint endeavor and will include the names of both institutions.
