The Teacher Education Program at Furman University is committed to preparing educators who are scholars and leaders.
Our teacher preparation programs will equip you to be a dynamic educator and leader in your field. You'll receive unmatched experiences (starting in your freshman year) in local classrooms under the mentorship of Furman faculty and veteran teachers.

Furman offers the Teacher to Teacher Residency Program that requires a yearlong experience in a cooperating teacher's classroom. You can begin taking graduate courses and complete the final internship as an induction year teacher of record in your own classroom. The M.A. option offers you an additional area of teaching licensure and expertise in a year's time.
