Message From The Dean

Message from the Dean


Welcome to the School of Science and Mathematics at USCB!  We house the traditional Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors, and it’s a great time to be a STEM major.  The two largest majors, Biology and Computational Science, have been growing steadily for the past few years, and we are poised to be a leader in STEM education in South Carolina.

To make ours a meaningful and transformative undergrad experience, we are busy building research programs and internships to generate “hands on” opportunities to get involved with what STEM majors “do,” even before you graduate.  As a testament to our strengths, our graduates are going on to jobs in industry/government (locally and nationally), graduate school, medical/dental/pharmacy schools and more.

We hope you’ll discover the “not so hidden” lowcountry treasure that is the School of Science and Mathematics at USCB, where you can get all the top-tier experience with a small-school feel.

Join us and let us help you achieve your goals.  Feel free to contact us at, we look forward to hearing from you.
