The Graduate Historical Society (GHS) is the organization for students in the joint Citadel/College of Charleston Masters of Arts in History program. The group hosts professional and social events with both Departments of History and other student organizations. Building relationships and fostering a sense of intellectual community are key to your success in our program. Therefore, we encourage you to attend all society events. Some examples of yearly functions, hosted by the GHS, include an annual kickoff party at the start of each academic year, ghost tours during Halloween, and a Relay for Life team in the spring. Please join our Facebook group to learn more about upcoming events.
