Franklin College Health Science Programs

Franklin College has long stood for excellence in health and science education. We carry on that legacy through our graduate degree programs, arming our students with the advanced learning and hands-on clinical experience they need to lead with integrity, discernment, and foresight.

Master of Science in Athletic Training

Experience seven supervised clinical rotations, rigorous coursework and individualized professional development while obtaining your Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree at Franklin College. The MSAT program combines traditional learning with immersive, hands-on experiences in a variety of settings that empower you to learn in and outside the classroom. Students leave the program prepared to successfully complete the national Board of Certification exam and become leaders in the profession. 

The Master of Science in Athletic Training at Franklin College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). A degree from a CAATE accredited program is necessary for students to be eligible for the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC) exam.

Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Franklin College Physician Assistant program sponsored by Franklin College. The first cohort of students matriculated in January 2019.
