“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. You'll study an interdisciplinary topic and you’ll connect with faculty who share your interest and who will serve as mentors, ensuring you'll have a support system in place to begin your college experience.
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, so you are all learning together. You’ll be led by faculty through course content and extracurricular activities that are relevant to your area of focus. All classes meet a first-year writing seminar or general education requirement. Best of all, faculty and staff will be there to help you feel comfortable, encouraged, and supported, ensuring you grow as a student and as a citizen of the world.
A list of the 2016-17 Engaged Living academic programs will be available the week of February 22, 2016. In the meantime, check out the Engaged Living programs currently being offered for 2015-16:
