Student Experiences

As an economics major at Furman, you’ll enjoy the same experiences found at larger schools with the benefits of studying at a small school. From summer research programs and best paper competitions to internships and conference presentations, our students have the opportunity to participate in programs that are often reserved for graduate students at larger schools. But you’ll also be able to take advantage of a liberal arts education, studying and conducting research with faculty who know your name. Our philosophy focuses on the student. And our close integration with other academic departments means you’ll be able to pursue your wide-ranging interests, whether you’re interested in environmental economics, women’s studies, or poverty and urban issues.
