Alumni Testimonials

Our MCOM students have presented research at national academic conferences, secured internships with top communication agencies, supervised undergraduates in the classroom, and worked for campus offices ranging from Student Media to Institutional Advancement.  Many of our graduates have received funded assistantships in top doctoral programs across the country. Also, recent graduates have landed significant positions in corporate and agency settings from IBM, Forbes and Ketchum to Rawle Murdy, Le Creuset and Local Palate magazine. The graduate program also has a chapter of the College of Charleston Graduate Student Association that serves as an important academic and social support system for each cohort of graduate students.
