The College of Charleston’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences is striking out in bold new directions and creating new learning models to educate students with transferable skills that prepare them for today’s job market. At the same time, our students graduate with a strong sense of social and civic responsibility. They go on to be agents of change in their workplaces and communities.

A hallmark of all our academic programs is experiential learning, inside and outside of the classroom, through internships, faculty–student research collaborations, international experiences, and mentorship programs. This distinction has put the College on a path to national prominence.

Jessica Lawless ’14, was recently profiled in The College of Charleston Magazine, as a woman who always put being a mom first.  After receiving her associates degree from Trident Technical College in 2012, Jessica wanted to go on to receive her bachelors degree, but did not know how she would be able to keep her job and do so.  When she heard that CofC “was developing a specialized continuing education program that was designed for people like her” she knew this would be a perfect choice.

Last fall, Jessica was the first to graduate from the College’s Bachelor of Professional Studies program.  Congratulations Jessica on your boundless academic drive and achievements.

Read Jessica’s full story and others in the latest edition of College of Charleston Magazine.

Caroline Kenny ’15: A Diplomatic and Dedicated Student

Caroline Kenny ‘15 is one of the most dedicated and accomplished members of the senior class. Caroline is an esteemed member of the Honors College and  a double major in Communication and Political Science. Through the Washington Semester Program in the Honors college, Caroline spent the fall of 2013 working in Washington, DC for the Democratic National Committee.  This fall, Caroline worked for Vincent Sheehan, serving as the field organizer.  She also created and ran a Rock the Vote event on campus to encourage all CofC students to vote in the midterm elections.

“The College has offered me so many opportunities to pursue and a world of connections. I came to CofC with one mindset and will leave with another from my experiences here,” says Caroline.

One opportunity she has taken advantage of here is working for the Athletics Department in the media relations office.  Her position includes: running media boards at games, running statistics during timeouts, tweeting for the department, recording and transcribing all press conferences, writing feature stories on athletes, and more. Caroline also served as Executive Director of Dance Marathon this year, which is the largest student-run philanthropy on campus.  She is also active in Honors College programs, Student Alumni Associates, Phi Mu Sorority, and College Democrats.

Upon graduation this May, Caroline will be attending the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University to obtain a Masters of Science in Journalism.

Alyssa Demko, a graduate student receiving her M.S. in Marine Biology, recently won the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF-GRFP) award.  This prestigious award covers salary and school costs for three years, while simultaneously providing a number of other opportunities for research collaborations.

Out of nearly 14,000 applicants, Alyssa was one of 2,000 students awarded a NSF fellowship, making her the third College of Charleston student to win such a prestigious fellowship!

Alyssa was recently featured on the Grice Marine Laboratory website and on the Patriots Point Science Spotlight website.  Alyssa is currently studying with Erik Sotka, where they are looking at the effects of phylogeny and latitude on seaweed palatability.  She is currently studying 50 different seaweeds from all over the world!

After defending her thesis this summer and with her NSF-GRFP, Alyssa is planning on receiving her PhD in the fall from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography Program at UC, San Diego.  She remarks how she is thrilled to begin working with Dr. Paul Jensen on marine microbial chemical ecology.
