The McMaster School, built in 1911, is an historic building located at 1106 Pickens Street on the corner of Senate Street in Columbia, South Carolina. It was designed by noted Columbia architect William Augustus Edwards of the firm of Edwards and Walter. It was named for Col. F. W. McMaster (1826-1899), the first chairman of the local school board and was used as a grammar school until 1956.

In 1960 it was bought by the state for the University of South Carolina and renamed McMaster College. It has been used since then by USC's Art and Media Arts departments except for a brief period when it was first the Music School and then the ROTC building.[2][3][4]

On July 25, 1997, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[5]
