“Engaged learning” isn’t just a tagline at Furman—it’s an active, exciting
way of understanding how to see the world and solve problems. By enrolling in one of our academic programs, you'll study a topic with a faculty sponsor and classmates who share your unique interests. Engaged Living will help you make
connections, engage your mind, and learn how to learn.
Typically, you’ll have your choice between five different academic programs and you’ll take a class or two with other Engaged Living students who
live in your residence hall. All classes
meet a first-year seminar, general education, or elective requirement. Best of all, faculty and staff will be there to help you feel comfortable,
encouraged, and supported, ensuring you grow as a student.
