The College of Graduate Studies and Research at Coastal Carolina University is kicking off a new initiative on March 16 called Master’s Mondays aimed at highlighting and showcasing the different graduate degree programs offered at CCU. These information sessions will give prospective students the chance to dive deeper and learn more about furthering their education in a no-pressure environment.

“This is a weekly opportunity for current students to ask any questions they may have about graduate programs or to simply find out what is available,” said Robert Young, interim dean of the College of Graduate Studies and Research.

Every Monday for four consecutive weeks, an information table will be set up inside the Lib Jackson Student Union rotunda from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and a representative from different programs will be available to answer questions and provide more information.

• March 16, the Spadoni College of Education

• March 23, the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts

• March 30, the Gupta College of Science

• April 6, the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration and the HTC Honors College and Center for Interdisciplinary Studies

CCU offers 30 graduate programs, including 26 master’s degrees, two educational specialist degrees (educational leadership and instructional technology), and two doctoral programs (coastal and marine systems science, and education) across the five colleges.

Several new graduate programs have been added recently, including communication; music technology; language, literacy, and culture; special education; information systems technology; and sport management.

“CCU offers a variety of graduate degree programs in all academic colleges,” said Young. “Daily access to your future graduate teachers and advisors, as well as the opportunity take graduate courses as an undergraduate through the accelerated studies program, provide an opportunity to get a head start on your graduate education.”

The College of Graduate Studies and Research was established in January 2019 to focus on the coordination of graduate recruitment and enrollment across all academic disciplines. To learn more, visit coastal.edu/graduatestudies. View a list of the graduate programs offered here.
