Naming Opportunities for the Gupta College of Science

Quick Facts

  • The marine science program is one of the largest on the East Coast and is the largest undergraduate major at the University. Students are exposed to the breadth of the discipline through courses in marine biology, marine chemistry, oceanography and marine geology. Students can become involved in hands-on learning opportunities from their first year, culminating in individual research experiences.
  • The Swain Scholars program allows students in selected science majors to work on team-based community health projects. Past projects have dealt with nutrition, diabetes education and homelessness. Students have presented the results of their projects at many prestigious venues including the “Posters on the Hill” event in Washington, D.C.
  • The annual Undergraduate Research Competition brings out the best that CCU science has to offer. Students use this event to present their independent research to their colleagues, faculty and staff. Many students use the feedback to hone their presentation skills prior to presenting their work at local, regional and national scientific conferences.
  • Several science departments (public health, exercise science, recreation and sport management) require an internship of their graduates, while others stress the importance of this option (sociology, biology, psychology, etc.). In addition to the importance of independent research work, the internship experience provides valuable “real world” skills for students entering the job market.

“My goal has always been to pursue a career in art therapy.

I have been successful in that pursuit because of all of the opportunities Coastal has given me. These opportunities have allowed me to grow, learn and develop as a student. They have made it possible to be a double major in studio art and psychology and complete my degree in four years. The faculty has supported and encouraged me to make the connections between each of my majors. It is because of the financial support Coastal offered me that I chose to come to school here four years ago, and I am very glad that I did. The decision to attend Coastal has impacted my life in an exceptional way.”

“Coastal Carolina’s College of Science works hard to create opportunities for its students and to establish a strong educational foundation.

It has given me the privilege of being a member of the Science Research Fellows program, which is easily the best thing that has happened to me since my arrival at Coastal. As a Science Fellow, I have the opportunity to conduct research with Coastal’s top professors all while being granted a small stipend. I believe that opportunities like these will distinguish me as I prepare to join the workforce and also highlight the College of Science’s dedication to preparing its students.”
