Are master’s students eligible to participate in Franklin’s Apprenticeship Program?
Let us know that this is an interest and we will explore getting a graduate degree apprenticeship approved, if we have additional students to consider.
When is the ideal time to start the apprenticeship?
It depends on the employer and the job. In some cases, you cannot start employment until you have some education underway. This does not mean that you cannot start if the employer is satisfied with your current education level and future goals. In some cases, students can start even when they are in the last stages of their degree.
Do I get college credit for the apprenticeship?
You get credit for the nine aligned courses that are required for the degree you are seeking. There are no additional credits for the apprenticeship.
Can international students participate in the apprenticeship?
It depends. If you are eligible for hire in the United States, then you can participate in the apprenticeship program but this is up to the employer to determine.
