Study Away Experiences

Studying economics at Furman goes beyond classroom lectures and research projects. We offer students exciting opportunities to put their quantitative and analytical skills to use through scholarly communication with our study away and May Experience programs.

Approximately 70% of Furman Economics students participate in opportunities to study away from Furman. Furman Economics faculty members lead interdisciplinary study away programs in Brussels and Edinburgh that incorporate an international internship experience. Economics students participate in these programs, other Furman faculty-led study away programs, and study away programs offered through Furman’s affiliate partners. Students can participate in semester-long study away programs and/or study away programs during Furman’s May Experience.
