Outside the Classroom
As a Southern Studies major, you’ll benefit from the rich programs offered by the Spencer B. King, Jr. Center for Southern Studies. The King Center for Southern Studies hosts several lecture series and programs that bring important scholars and writers to Mercer to share their work with students and the Macon community. The Center also awards the Sidney Lanier Prize for Southern Literature, which is presented to writers who have made significant contributions to writing about the South over the course of their careers.
In addition to programs offered through the center, you will have the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research and put what you learn to work in an internship.
