May Experience Registration Furman University

May Experience is an optional three-week term that moves out of the classroom, melding theory with practice for intensive learning experiences. It offers an opportunity to explore topics outside of your major that aren't typically offered during the academic year. The program includes two-credit courses, including short study away experiences that aren't possible in the fall or spring terms. You can also engage in an important issue or pursue instruction in research methods before a summer research project.

The courses offered in May Experience do not meet major or independent studies requirements.
