The Franklin Fellows Program designed specifically for current and recent students in the Voluntary Core Curriculum.  The program builds on the VCC and carries students through the remainder of their undergraduate career at Emory. The Franklin Fellows Program aims to guide motivated students to a serious traditional liberal education, rooted in the study of the great books, and extending outside the classroom with events such as reading groups, film discussions, and trips to fine arts performances. It is designed for students who want a direct and respectful, but probing and critical study of major creative and theoretical works that have shaped human thought and history. Franklin Fellows will enter into debates about human nature, ethics, government, history, and the meaning of life. They will learn skills of critical reasoning, close reading, and clear, cogent writing. Not least, they will join a community of scholars and form friendships founded on a passion for fundamental questions, a spirit of friendly debate, and a willingness to engage in critical self-scrutiny.
