    About University of South Carolina-Beaufort

    T The University of South Carolina Beaufort, a small (1,000 to 1,500 students/fall headcount enrollment) senior campus of the state’s largest public university, brings the University of South Carolina’s statewide mission of teaching, research, scholarship, and public service to the rapidly growing Lowcountry of South Carolina. USCB offers baccalaureate degrees that respond to regional needs, draw upon regional strengths, and prepare graduates to participate successfully in communities here and around the globe. The campus also supports the USC Extended Graduate Campus, which provides local access to graduate courses and programs. USCB offers programs in mathematics and the natural sciences, humanities, and professional and social sciences. Its curriculum is designed to promote acquisition of knowledge and, through it, the intellectual dispositions and skills that encourage depth of understanding, tolerance of others and individual accountability. Attracting a racially and culturally diverse student body of varying ages and experiences, the University of South Carolina Beaufort draws its students primarily from the South Carolina Lowcountry, with representation from other parts of the state, other states, and foreign countries. The University encourages students to think analytically and abstractly, to explore options, to see similarities, to be open to differences, to communicate effectively, and to respect each individual. The major intellectual and cultural center for the region, the University enriches the quality of life for area residents of all ages through presentations of the performing and fi ne arts, community service, symposia, research initiatives, and partnerships with area schools, businesses and organizations.
