study away

In our study away programs, our students have even interned with global organizations, such as the European Union and Scottish Parliament. But unlike programs at other universities, our study away trips provide an academic component. Our professors lead many of our programs, ensuring that you will receive a Furman quality education while traveling off-campus.

Discover the possibilities.  Visit our Study Away site for more information.

The May Experience

MayX is an optional three-week term in May that encourages innovative and intensive academic experiences.  In recent years, the Busines & Accounting department has sponsored three MayX opportunities in which our students have participated. They are:  "New York, New York:  Business at the Top of the World," "Business Practices and Economies of South-East Asia," and "From Germany to South Carolina:  Examining Economic Globalization Through the Lens of the Global Automotive Industry."

Other departments offer MayX opportunities as well.  Be sure to visit our Study Away site for more information.
