Our Economics department offers extensive co-curricular opportunities that rival larger schools but come with small-school advantages like a student-focused philosophy, a low student-to-teacher ratio, and a strong alumni network.

Whether you’re interested in mathematics, environmental studies, women’s studies, or Asian Studies, our diverse program and holistic approach to education will focus on developing your quantitative and analytical skills. You’ll graduate with the ability to see the world as a puzzle and figure out how to fit the pieces together. With an economics degree from Furman, you’ll be prepared to pursue a wide variety of educational and occupational endeavors, including investment banking, finance, law school, consulting, public policy, urban planning, and environmental management.
