FMU Honors rewards excellent students with enhanced educational opportunities that foster inquiry, stimulate learning and promote community involvement. The program offers a unique curriculum, special social and co-curricular activities, community living and study abroad opportunities. FMU Honors also reflect the university’s commitment to personalized instruction, low faculty-to-student ratios and an enriching undergraduate experience.
Admission to FMU Honors is made by application.
Francis Marion University works hard to create a variety of interesting and rewarding travel experiences for our students. Trips vary in purpose and length. All are worthwhile and potentially life-changing. But semester-long exchange programs — the core of FMU’s international programs — are unrivaled for transformative power. Students who spend a full semester abroad are never the same again. We encourage students to give this concept full consideration. We currently have nine full semester exchange partners in four different countries, with more on the way. There’s an experience here for everyone.
FMU’s WildSumaco biological research site, located in the foothills of the Andes mountains, has given hundreds of Francis Marion students the ability to expand their world. Wildsumaco Biological Station is a collaborative effort between Francis Marion University, the University of North Carolina Wilmington, and Wildsumaco Wildlife Sanctuary (Ecuador). The station also works with our biology colleagues at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador. Construction was completed in January, 2012. The station houses up to 18 people in dorm-style accommodations with shared baths, and a combination dining and education building.
