Bachelor of Science in Biology (Coastal Ecology and Conservation) University of South Carolina Beaufort
Coastal Ecology and Conservation
The Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in Coastal Ecology and Conservation serves the need for trained coastal scientists with the 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 of the local environment. Several of USCB's recent graduates are currently pursuing advanced degrees in some of 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.
The types of classes you will take include: Invertebrate Zoology, Biology of Marine Organisms, Marine Plants, Ichthyology, Conservation Biology, Marine Ecology, Molecular Marine Ecology, and Selected Topics in Biology.
Research opportunities, including projects with the Research Vessel Vagabond, are also available.
