Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) is right in the heard of Charleston, SC. The charm of the town is reflected in the people who both attend and teach at the university. It's been a wonderful experience so far, and I'm just a little over a month in. I'm from Northern California, where things are a bit different (namely, there are actual burritos). Still, this setting has been more than welcoming. MUSC is a magnificent campus, with incredibly accessible faculty. Something I notice about this program is that the professors and administration ACTUALLY care about you, something I couldn't say coming out of the University of California undergrad system. There, I was just a number and a tuition bill. Here, I'm a person with dreams. What I find MOST amazing about this program is their incredible emphasis on interprofessionalism between health professions. It takes a team from different backgrounds to treat a patient, and MUSC knows that. I love it. Come here.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel supported by my faculty and peers but would love for the school to update some of it's methods to include more technological advancements.The financial aid in the Masters of Social Work program includes graduate assistance-ships but not very many external scholarships. There is reliable public transportation and exceptional housing at an affordable cost. The field placement is not guaranteed to be local so it is imperative to get to know the area and sources of transportation. The community is beautiful and as a transplant from Colorado it has been easy to find kind and considerate people to get to know!

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

While Charleston is a great city to live for the food, the history, the night life, the entertainment, it is an expensive place to live as well (at least on tight budget). The great thing about the grad school at MUSC is that you get exposed to a lot of different areas of study and techniques that can be used across the field. To accompany that they try to make sure you have connections across campus in case you need assistance for different aspects of your research. The research workload varies between department and your particular area of study and project. Some days or some weeks may be much more intensive than others but overall its manageable. The student diversity is great at MUSC - you meet and work with people from all over and from different cultural backgrounds as well.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2018

MUSC is an amazing college that grants the educational experience one would want from a graduate school. While the coursework is difficult and time consuming, the end result is well worth the time and effort. Housing is extremely expensive in Charleston, which makes the financial need greater.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

This program works well for working professional's schedule. The professors and staff of the Moore Business School are dedicated to the success of the students and give every opportunity for success. The only con to the program is the all day Saturday classes, but there are only 3 per semester, so it's not too bad. Great program overall!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

MUSC is a great school. They genuinely want all of their students to do well. They provide all types of resources for students that need all kinds of help. The competitive environment has been completely eradicated. Everyone likes to help and the diversity is wonderful. Being a minority I appreciate diversity and this school not only has people of many races and ethnicities but it also has all types of students. It has a variety of nontraditional and traditional students. I am so glad I chose this institution and I welcome anyone else who would love to join me in Charleston. Charleston is a wonderful city with great food and wonderful people. It is definitely a different world in South Carolina. Not the traditional South Carolina city. It's also next to the beach. You can't beat that

The workload is certainly manageable. There is a lot to do in Charleston, which is perfect for free time. The faculty is the best and everyone wants the students to do well and are willing to help whenever needed.
