Fields of study

Looking for an internship that relates directly to your studies? We can help you find it. At Furman, we’ve had a biology major work with sea turtles in Florida, an economics major work at a performing arts venue in Washington, D.C., and a communications major work at a public relations firm in New York, just to name a few. We'll discuss your coursework, what you want to learn, and where you want to intern to help you find options.

Government and civil service

Our students have been involved in internships at every level of government. From working on sustainability projects with the City of Greenville to serving in the public affairs office at the Australian Embassy in Washington, D.C., our students are all over the world learning how to be global leaders.

International

Our students have traveled across the globe, from Brussels to China to Edinburgh. They've learned about working internationally through study away programs that include internships. Students also pursue internships in international corporations and non-profits in Europe, India, South America, and Africa.

Non-profit organizations

Are you passionate about civil liberties? Helping underprivileged children? Working with refugees? Planning programs to help make our nation healthier? We can help you make a difference. By working with a non-profit organization, you can gain insight into how these organizations operate and determine if non-profit work is right for you.
