A signature liberal arts education
Furman is the place for the talented, the passionate, the curious. The diligent scholar, the dedicated musician or artist, and the irrepressible athlete are equally at home here.
Our academics can challenge even the most dedicated rising scholar. Everything becomes a riddle to be solved, a mystery to be unraveled, a paradox to be pondered. Everything is looked at through the lens of a specific discipline—
the lens of an economist, a poet, a chemist, an artist. And everything becomes a lesson in sustainability
Our students engage in real research—
not just washing bottles. They ask their own questions. Present their own papers at national conferences. All under the mentorship of Furman’s professors. Study away programs
are faculty-led. Internships
are matched to the skills and interests of our students and have an academic component. Classes are small. Professors are always available.
With more than 25 departments
and more than 40 majors
, our students experience a world of uncompromising academics.
