The Beaufort College Honors Program (BCHP)

USCB is pleased to announce the Beaufort College Honors
Program (BCHP) with majors in Nursing and biology beginning Fall, 2018.

The BCHP, is a residential cohort designed to offer a shared experience with students living together, studying together and having specific experiences to enhance learning, improve engagement, and develop a sense of community.

We offer programs in honors nursing and honors biology with students and faculty who share common academic goals and interests.  This program begins on the Beaufort campus where students can take advantage of the customized honors experience, and then transition to the Bluffton campus for their junior and senior years in the program.

Honors students will live on the Beaufort campus in brand new "apartment style" campus housing.
