Internships

At Furman, internships are considered a part of the academic learning process. You’ll use your internship to gain knowledge and skills by applying your classroom experiences and pursuing your interests.

Over seventy percent of our students complete an internship during their time at Furman and you’ll find there are a lot of resources to support you in the internship process. In the past, students have taken advantage of faculty-led courses; advice and connections from our alumni, parents, and friends; our Summer Fellowship Funding process; and one-on-one attention from the Internship Office.

Get started on your search for an internship by meeting with the Internship Office to assit with tools, resources, and connections. Contact us.
