Research opportunities are available through the Coastal Ecology and Conservation concentration, which leads to a Bachelor of Science in Biology .  This research helps to aid in the training of upcoming coastal scientists with knowledge and skills required to address the unique problems facing coastal ecosystems.

Environmental stresses from intense commercial and residential development have the potential to significantly impact sensitive coastal ecosystems if growth is not properly managed. USCB is well positioned to exploit the unique physical and ecological characteristics of the Sea Islands Coastal Region for the training of our students in the protection the local environment. Several of USCB's recent graduates are currently pursuing advanced degrees in some to the most competitive graduate programs both domestically and internationally. Others are working in local and regional coastal conservation/science positions as well as ecotourism jobs.
