1 – Developing a holistic skill set

The heart of our curriculum amplifies personal and professional development, providing deep knowledge in a chosen subject and a breadth of experience in many others. This well-rounded approach to learning empowers our students to master the core skills that prepare them to lead in their fields, including critical thinking, communication, and problem solving.

2 – Preparing for the workplace with professional development

Every Franklin student has an off-campus experience in a professional environment before graduation, priming our students to land and succeed in their first professional roles. We also host working professionals in the classroom as they teach alongside professors to provide insights based on current industry best practices.

3 – Diving  into an interest with undergraduate research

Every Franklin student completes a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Students propose and pursue topics of their choosing, allowing them to investigate their own intellectual and creative curiosities.

4 – Building a support system with faculty and staff

Our unique learning experience is delivered by faculty and staff who are focused on inclusive, interactive teaching. These relationships transcend traditional student-teacher dynamics and evolve over time into lifelong mentorships.

5 – Rounding out education with immersive experiences

Every Franklin student examines a relevant issue during our 3-week immersive term and later completes an internship, practicum, study abroad or field experience to complement their classroom learning.
