Student Research

USCB Student ResearchAs a USCB student, you can become an integral part of one of the university’s exciting research programs. You might work on designing and testing anti-parasitic drugs, help to excavate a centuries old structure on Hilton Head Island, study the microbiome of sharks, or interview local residents to help them stay in their homes as they age. Work with SCETV and help produce a statewide television show, determine the economic impact of Lowcountry festivals, or analyze the health of our local ecosystem. Help others while you build a resume that will impress employers and graduate schools - many USCB research projects are designed to produce data and analyses needed by local governments, nonprofit organizations, and businesses.

Publish your results as a co-author in national research journals. Present those results to fellow researchers at state and regional conferences, and to the USCB and Lowcountry communities at USCB’s Student Research and Scholarship Day. As a USCB student researcher, you will gain a foundation for the future.
