Journey, Study, Connect Through Global Education
A liberal arts education has always served to open minds and hearts to the wider world, but today that reach is truly global. Our commitment to this global perspective is reflected in our curriculum, in our commitment to off-campus study, and also in the 13 percent of our student body who come from abroad to study here in the U.S.
Our focus on global education recognizes that, no matter where life takes students after Franklin & Marshall, they will be working and living with people with vastly different ways of perceiving our world. A global education helps students begin to understand how to negotiate these differences, strengthening abilities to successfully live and work in our increasingly global society.
F&M has more than 200 programs with schools overseas in virtually every area of the world. If a school or program isn't on the list, our advisers in the Office of International Programs will work with students to build an appropriate course of study in the country and institution a student chooses.Search Programs
