Meaningful Academics

The liberal arts remain the foundation of a great education for all FMU students, but we’re developing high-caliber professional programs to meet the 21st century needs of both our students and our community.

The Right Size

No giant lecture halls here. We keep class sizes small and the crowds thin at FMU because that’s the environment that best facilitates learning. A 15:1 student-professor ratio, and right about 4,000 students sound like “just right” numbers to us.


Students can walk our lovely, tree-lined campus in 20 minutes, but most take longer because in a place this pretty, you have to stop and enjoy nature’s beauty.


Francis Marion University has been recognized for five straight years as a “Great College to Work For” Honor Roll university by the Chronicle for Higher Ed. More at

FMU is consistently ranked among the Best Regional Universities by U.S. News and World Report.
Francis Marion University is in ETC’s top 10 percent of universities that have the most impact on a graduate’s long-term career earnings. More at
