This addition allows for expansion of the University’s health sciences program which will be offered to incoming students beginning in the fall of 2012. The health sciences major is a pre-professional program providing students with the curriculum, advising, internship and field experiences necessary for entry into graduate and professional programs including medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, public health, physical therapy, pharmacy and healthcare management. We offer conditional acceptance of highly qualified undergraduates into our doctor of physical therapy program and our graduates may also pursue admission to our master of physician assistant studies program.
The addition will include two unique learning environments for undergraduate and graduate students: a multipurpose, multimedia smart classroom designed to take advantage of technology in education and maximize student-teacher interaction, and a connecting flexible laboratory classroom equipped with technology and media for today’s health education. Three faculty offices on the second floor are designed to allow for greater collaborative opportunities between teaching faculty from undergraduate and graduate programs.
“This is a very exciting time for Franklin Pierce University,” said Dr. Birge. “Everyone associated with the University should be extremely proud of the work that has gone into developing these initiatives. Through new academic and athletic initiatives, Franklin Pierce will become an even more desirable ‘college of choice’ for undergraduate students.”
