School Details

The University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB) has one of the oldest traditions of higher education in the nation, dating to the 1795 charter of Beaufort College. An act of the South Carolina legislature authorized the college to confer degrees in the liberal arts or sciences “usually conferred in other colleges in Europe and America.” The curriculum  focused on theoretical science. When the original college building was constructed in 1802, the motto was chiseled onto the cornerstone: “Virtue, Liberty and Science.” Today, USCB responds to regional needs, draws upon regional strengths, and prepares graduates to contribute locally, nationally, and internationally with its mission of teaching, research, and service.

USCB awards associate’s and bachelor’s degrees from the following academic departments:

  • Business Administration
  • Education
  • English, Theater and Liberal Studies
  • Fine Arts
  • Hospitality Management
  • Humanities
  • Mathematics and Computational Science
  • Natural Sciences
  • Nursing and Health Professions
