Furman offers more than an undergraduate experience in Asian Studies. Our faculty share their experience and expertise with our surrounding community, whether they're connecting high school students to the world's largest continent or guiding school districts on how to infuse Asian Studies into their curriculum. If you're interested in studying Asia's languages and cultures, come to Furman and join one of our summer programs.
