USCB's International Programs: Engaging Global Minds

The University of South Carolina Beaufort offers myriad opportunities for students, faculty, staff and community members to experience an internationalized and globally engaged learning and education.

Multiple higher education groups, entities, and organizations have touted the plethora of benefits that a global and diverse education provides: AACU, AASCU, ACE, and IIE, just to name a few.

At USCB, we endeavor to provide these opportunities to our students and the university community, as evidenced by the inclusion of the terms “culturally diverse” in our upcoming Strategic Plan.
