What Sets F&M Apart
Collaboration is the cornerstone of a Franklin & Marshall education. What makes academics at F&M truly distinctive is that our students work side by side with professors who want to help them realize ideas, not just talk or read about them.
Every F&M student has the opportunity to be creative, examine values and test theories beyond the classroom.

The "Connections" curriculum that unites all areas of study at F&M cultivates in students —throughout their four years — the ability to apply innovative solutions to complex problems: Connect ideas. Connect across different majors. Connect with the world.Read more
Snorkle in the ocean off Hawaii, swing from the trees in Costa Rica or discover pulsars in the observatory. F&M students in the natural sciences work shoulder-to-shoulder with faculty in the laboratory, through experiences studying in the field, and through advising throughout independent research.Read more
At F&M, faculty are committed to working one-on-one with students who strive to stage their own plays, compose their own music, choreograph their own dance, write their own novels, and produce their own films. Our students learn about past and current masters, and can become masters themselves.Read more
Students at F&M engage with the big questions in ways they might never have imagined. Some travel to Tuscany to uncover answers as part of a Classics course, or work with a professor to explore questions of justice. Our study of the humanities fuels lifelong learning.Read more
