Victoria Musheff


Prof. Musheff obtained her B.A. in History from the College of Charleston (magna cum laude) where she earned Departmental Honors and history faculty awarded her the William Moultrie Cup, Rebecca Motte Chapter, for excellence in the Advanced Study of American History.

Musheff completed her M.A. coursework at The Citadel Graduate College & Graduate College of Charleston joint-history program while working full-time as the Citadel's Assistant Director of Financial Aid/Scholarships and serving two Citadel Graduate Assistantships. She was also appointed to The Town of Mount Pleasant Historical Commission (Term: 2009-13, Chair, 2011-13). While volunteering for the city commission, Musheff launched key historical projects, including the research and design - not to mention actual construction - of the official municipal history website. She also sponsored the municipal ordinance to establish the city's first archival collection and archival center, which opened in the new city hall in 2016. 

In April that same year, under her Graduate Director, Dr. David L. Preston, Musheff successfully defended her Master’s Thesis titled, French Catholic Acadians & British South Carolina, 1755-1765, to earn her M.A. in American History. Her thesis is shelved in the South Carolina Room at the Charleston County Public Library downtown Charleston.

When she isn’t working to support the mission of the Citadel Department of History, Musheff continues her study of history, including work on a manuscript  about South Carolina’s Acadians. She also enjoys her adult children and friends, serving her James Island church, especially on Ministry Council, rehabbing her rescued racing greyhound, Winston, and taking walks in city parks.

Professor Musheff currently teaches Western Civilization II (1750 to modern era).
