Second Bachelor's Degrees

Increase your marketability with a second bachelor’s degree

Franklin’s Subsequent Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees allow you to build on the bachelor’s degree you’ve already earned and broaden your knowledge-base to include another academic area. A second bachelor’s degree gives you a credential that could help you stay current or advance within your industry or even try something new. One benefit of this option is that you may be able to apply some of the credits from your first bachelor’s to satisfy requirements for the second. So you save time and tuition money while expanding your expertise.
