There are many reasons to come to Furman. Small classes. Friendly students on a residential campus. A beautiful campus in the lively city of Greenville. But when you get right down to it, the most important reason must be our academics.
The omnipresence of the liberal arts—where a political science major may take a graphic design course to learn to confront issues from a visual perspective—will transform you into a problem solver who thinks deeply, makes connections where others see only loose ends, and develops creative solutions to complex problems. Your professors will teach you to communicate with clarity, preparing you for leadership in any field or endeavor.
Simply put, our approach to the liberal arts prepares our students to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex and ever-changing world.
