Words from Alumni
“Pursuing the M.A. in Intelligence & Security Studies at The Citadel has provided me with an invaluable experience. The level of knowledge, diversity, and real-world experience of the professors has given me in depth insight and unparalleled access to working professionals in the intelligence community, that has proven critical to my success in the private sector."

“My experience in the Clinical Counseling Psychology Master's program was wholly transformative. By graduation, I felt confident as a novice therapist and was armed with the professional support and development necessary to make the most of my degree. If you are willing to give this program your all, it will give you all as well.”
“My experience in the Clinical Counseling program facilitated growth in the scholarly, professional, and personal aspects of my life. While in the program, my path switched gears to attaining a doctoral degree and the faculty not only wholeheartedly supported but also helped tailor my experiences to prepare me. The program provided me with a broad clinical base that has served me well in my doctoral program and all of the varying clinical settings that I have been in.”

"I was a Naval officer for nine years and started planning my life as a civilian a year before I resigned my commission. I'm originally from Maryland, but my oldest brother has lived in Charleston for more than 12 years and I fell in love with the city visiting him throughout the years. I ultimately chose The Citadel because its MBA program is accredited — and it’s the best in Charleston. Plus, the campus' military atmosphere felt familiar enough to me as a former service member, yet more comfortable and welcoming to civilians than most other military campuses. I'm currently using my Post-911 GI Bill, and the campus Veterans Office has been a very helpful resource for using the GI Bill for my master’s.
I earned my undergraduate degree in political science, so my business background was limited to the leadership books I read while on active duty. As a result, my first five classes in the MBA program were MBA foundation courses that provided me with a solid start to ensure my future success in the MBA program. I also get great support from my MBA advisor who is always available to meet with me. And I make sure to take advantage of the various networking opportunities available through MBAA socials and The Career Center Career Days."
