We measure the angular and spatial correlation function, \omega(\theta) on scales of \theta = 3" - 300" and \xi(r) on scales of 1-25 h-1 Mpc of 18,801 starburst galaxies (SBGs) with 20 < i+AB < 25 in the COSMOS Field and compare to the correlation functions of the full galaxy sample (180,451 objects) over 0 < z \le 2.4. We find in all redshift slices of thickness dz = 0.4, except 0.8 < z \le 1.2 for \omega(\theta) only, that the amplitude of the clustering of SBGs is greater than that of the full galaxy sample. We report results of fits to a power law profile, measured correlation lengths, and discuss implications for starburst environments.
