The Sustainability Science curriculum offered by Furman University centers on three guiding questions:
- What are the history and processes of our planet?
- How are humans transforming our planet?
- How can all of humanity live well within the means of one planet?
Our programs focus on analyzing and understanding the human-planetary relationship, constantly evolving real world sustainability challenges, and searching for innovative solutions that will positively impact the environment and society. Our curriculum can be tailored to your interests and career goals and provides excellent preparation for graduate school and a wide variety of professional careers. Small classes, with fewer than 15 students, result in individualized attention in an engaged learning environment.
Furman’s location at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and proximity to Greenville provide easy access to a geologically, ecologically, and socially diverse region with ample opportunity for integrating field experiences into your education. Our philosophy of “teaching through research” provides every student the opportunity to conduct collaborative field research with our faculty.
Our flexible curriculum supports a tremendous range of graduate programs and career opportunities.
A degree in Earth and Environmental Science or Sustainability Science will prepare you for a variety of career options and graduate programs. The ability of our majors to comprehend and tackle various social, economic, environmental, and sustainability issues makes them highly marketable and desirable.
