Majors & Minors: Choose Your Field of Study

Students who learn to confront the complex issues of today's world become the leaders who solve everyday problems in whatever path they choose in life.

Student-Faculty Collaboration at F&M

The Franklin & Marshall curriculum provides a framework for our students’ intellectual development over their four years at F&M, and helps them become the creative, responsible and ambitious participants in learning who will be exceptionally prepared to live and work beyond their years in college. 

Fields of Study offered at Franklin & Marshall College:

 

Academic Distinctiveness

Exceptional Faculty-Student Collaboration

At Franklin & Marshall College, we believe that undergraduate research, with careful mentoring of a faculty supervisor, can be one of a student's most meaningful and significant experiences at F&M, and it shouldn't be a "rare" experience for just a few hand-picked students.
