Graduate Health Sciences at Franklin College

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

Our Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program combines supervised clinical experience, classroom learning and professional development to prepare our graduates to serve as leaders in the athletic training and other healthcare related industries. Upon completion, our students are eligible to undertake the national Board of Certification (BOC) exam, propelling them into leadership positions immediately after graduation.

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.
