No matter what profession you enter, your values and your faith can and should influence who you decide to be in the world. Alongside a community of peers and the university chaplains, EVM offers students the opportunity to examine their beliefs and values, explore connections between their faith and the classroom, and experience internships in fields of service, justice, and ministry.
Students in EVM come from many majors and choose many paths after Furman including seminary and ministry, nonprofits, academia, legal, medical, and corporate professions.

Sure, we’ve had students working in churches, but we’ve also had students helping with mediation in a lawyer’s office, working with social justice non-profits, and even working with the chaplain at a prison.
