Furman students have wonderful opportunities to explore their passions and interests, developing their skills far beyond their classroom experiences. Students collaborate with faculty on research and creative projects that lead to knowledge-producing work. The Undergraduate Research office can help students connect with faculty, and we encourage students to reflect on their research or creative work as they contemplate the intersection between their passions, skills, and experiences.
In addition to the research and creative opportunities embedded in their coursework, many students also pursue full-time research or creative projects during the summer. Our summer research fellowship program provides funding for students to remain on campus to collaborate with faculty on these projects. Additionally, the Undergraduate Research office offers travel support to students presenting their research results at professional conferences throughout the year.
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.
