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.
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. We’re known for our transformative liberal arts curriculum, our investment in immersive learning, and for setting the standard for ethical leadership. That means you experience the strongest education and receive immediate real-world experience and leave knowing exactly what you want to pursue.
