Winner of the 2016 National Award for Undergraduate Research Accomplishment (AURA).​​​​​​​​​
Here, education is experience. When you come to Furman, you’ll integrate immersive experiences in our nationally awarded research program with the knowledge you’ve gained inside the classroom. This deliberate approach means you’ll be able to tailor and refine your education to match your personal and professional goals—and learn from the entire experience. Our faculty mentors serve as guides, ensuring you leave with the passion and skills to achieve a fulfilling life and rewarding career.

Our Furman Engaged!​ day every spring is a campus-wide showcase of our vibrant culture of Engaged Learning as students present their academic work and internships in every discipline, both inside and beyond the classroom.​
