Academic excellence. Discovered.

Our 30 areas of study incorporate exceptional instruction, extensive hands-on learning, and leading-edge resources and technology.

The most powerful discoveries are the ones that impact not only your own future, but enhance the lives of people everywhere. That’s exactly what the academic setting at the University of South Carolina Beaufort will empower you to do. Whether you want to run a world-class resort, climb the ladder at a Fortune 500 company, create the country’s next great technological innovation, inspire young minds as a teacher, or help save lives as a nurse, we have the programs that will get you there. Here’s how…

State-of-the-art facilities… Our Hilton Head Gateway campus is less than 10 years old, so you’ll enjoy the most modern labs, equipment, and learning resources.

Extensive hands-on learning… From research (link to new page) on marine life in a saltwater marsh, to working at a world-class resort on Hilton Head Island, to an internship at The White House, there are no limits to learning at USCB.

Personalized instruction… Our faculty (link to new faculty awards page) members are personally dedicated to the success of their students, and bring advanced degrees from places like MIT, the University of Chicago, Penn, Cornell, Emory, NYU, and more.
