The Citadel opens doors to students displaced by hurricane
The Citadel is taking steps to assist students who have been forced to move from areas affected by Hurricane Katrina and who want to continue their educational pursuits in the Charleston area.
The Citadel’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies, the evening college, is prepared to assist undergraduate students pursuing degrees in civil or electrical engineering or business administration as well as evening graduate students who are pursuing master’s level programs in business administration, education, humanities, computer science and social science.
“The Citadel hopes to be able to play a part in lessening the burdens for these adult students whose lives and education have been so dramatically and tragically interrupted,” said Donald Steven, provost and dean of the college.
Through The Citadel's evening college, undergraduate programs have been offered for Lowcountry citizens since 1966, and the graduate programs have been available since 1968. Today, the college offers more than 20 graduate major programs and three undergraduate majors through evening classes. CGPS also offers three undergraduate degrees through cooperative "2 + 2" programs with Trident Technical College. In addition, two specialist degree programs are offered along with three joint master’s programs with the College of Charleston.
