Experience the World with Academic Travel

At Franklin learning is more than reading books, taking notes and memorizing facts. As an integrated part of the curriculum, Franklin students travel to multiple locations to both experience first-hand what they learned in the classroom and gain insights directly from people who research, work and live in these places. Academic Travel takes place for two weeks every semester as part of a student’s course schedule and is included in tuition.
