Student teacher teaching a kid how to read

Program Overview

Furman University’s Education Department sees our community as a place of possibility and transformation. Our nation and communities face critical challenges and need caring, innovative, and skilled educators to be part of the solution. The Education Department has multiple pathways including a comprehensive B.A. teacher preparation program named Teacher to Teacher Residency resulting in a license, and an Educational Studies major designed for careers in non-traditional environments such as not-for-profits, camps, advocacy, or policy. Our unique programs stress local and civic engagement starting in your freshman year. You will also have the opportunities for global engagement with travel study trips to Australia and Europe.
