Discover Franklin College

Who we are

Founded in 1834, Franklin College was the first college in Indiana — and only the seventh in the nation— to admit women. To this day, that spirit of welcoming and inclusivity still defines who we are.

With a tight-knit student body of 1,023 students and a highly involved faculty, we offer a distinct opportunity to thrive in a supportive environment. From immersive internships to our tailored first-year experience, Franklin meets you where you are and takes you where you want to go.

What we offer

It’s called transformative liberal arts for a reason.

Here you’ll experience a comprehensive curriculum and meaningful mentorship. But more than that, you’ll learn to be a critical thinker and an effective communicator. You’ll learn how to adapt to challenges and solve problems creatively. You’ll fully prepare for the pursuit ahead.
