Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2018

The professors at Furman go above and beyond to help students achieve educational success. They are accessible and approachable, and are always willing to answer questions or offer suggestions. They are also very encouraging and did a lot to keep me going when I felt like I wouldn't make it.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2018

The professors are very friendly, helpful, and personable. Furman is known for providing a great education, and I have not been disappointed. I wish they had more scholarships for graduate students, and more options to take courses online or via video link.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2018

The cost is affordable and the hours are great--evening classes during the spring and fall semesters. Support from the professors and other staff is wonderful. I wish more online classes were offered though.

Graduation Year: 2018

The graduate studies office staff at Furman are incredibly helpful and personable! I wish there were more options for online study for some of the classes, but the evening classes for graduate students do provide great flexibility.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

While I am only in my first class of this graduate program, I feel the pros are how the content of my class is directly related in my profession. As a working teacher pursuing a degree in school leadership, it is exciting to see how much this education will affect my career. The cons of this program, and with any graduate program, are the cost and the time. Working and attending school is challenging but rewarding.
