At Furman, we help our students succeed with supportive faculty, flexibility, and the chance to do undergraduate research. When you major in earth and environmental sciences or sustainability science, you’ll find challenges and awarding opportunities to stretch and motivate you beyond what you thought you could accomplish.

Student Awards

The Earth and Environmental Sciences department provides five awards each year in recognition of student achievements. The award winners are recognized at an annual function organized by the University.

Engaged Living Programs

Furman University has had a long-standing commitment to promoting engaged learning through the development of academic learning experiences beyond the traditional classroom setting. The Engaged Living programs are designed to bring together students with common interests, increase classroom camaraderie and engagement, and foster the establishment of an academic and a social community outside the classroom around a particular topic. The EES department helps support two Engaged Living Programs: the Environmental Community of Students (ECOS) and the Greenbelt Program.
