  • Student Research

    Creative Inquiry courses are a combination of engaged learning and undergraduate research unique to Clemson University. Students take on problems usually in a team-based investigation setting and are led by a faculty and/or graduate student mentor. Topics are boundless. Students often find themselves presenting their work at national conferences, fielding questions from professionals and even getting published in professional magazines. This invaluable experience produces exceptional graduates. Our Creative Inquiry participants develop critical thinking skills, learn to solve problems as a team, and hone their communication and presentation skills.

    The FEC department has a number of Creative Inquiry courses available to undergraduates each semester. To discover what CI courses are available, visit the current projects page or go into iRoar>Student Registration Self Service>Browse Classes. Select the appropriate term from the drop-down, click Continue, and Search for FNR 4700in the course number block.

  • Internships

    Internships offer valuable work experience that employers like to see, and give the student insight into their potential career. Although many students will do an internship for the experience, it is not necessarily required for your major.

    FEC offers a Fields Study class (FNR 4900) for which students can actually receive three credits.  Not only do students gain valuable experience but it looks great to have professional experience listed on your resume.  To inquire about whether or not an internship is required for your major, check with your academic advisor, or the FEC Student Services Manager.

    If you are interested in an internship, please visit the WB Bookhart Student Services Center, F153 Poole Agricultural Center to inquire about employment opportunities.

Jim Farrell

Determined Spirit

As a high school sophomore, Jim had brain surgery to treat Moyamoya disease caused by blocked arteries. After surgery, Jim had a stroke that left him partially paralyzed and unable to talk. Rather than stay close to home where he would have family and friends to assist him, he still chose Clemson.
