That flexibility also empowers students to design individualized majors and minors, blending existing courses, individualized studies, professional development opportunities and research to create a custom learning experience. Here are just a few individualized majors our students have created in the past few years:

Students in this program earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from Franklin College in Applied Mathematics and a Bachelor of Science degree from Purdue University in one of three engineering fields, typically in the span of five years.
**All cooperative programs for the Biology and Chemistry majors consist of a common core and specific courses required for each particular program. After completion of three years of college work in one of these programs and fulfilling the Franklin College graduation requirements, students may receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from Franklin College upon completing one year at the cooperating institution.
In addition to declaring a major, students may indicate a pre-professional program of interest. Pre-professional programs supplement a major and are designed to prepare students for graduate school placement.
