Florida State University (FSU)

  • Description
  • One of the nation’s elite research uni­ver­si­ties, Florida State Uni­ver­sity — with the Carnegie Foun­da­tion’s high­est des­ig­na­tion, Doctoral/​Research University-​Extensive — offers a dis­tinc­tive aca­d­e­mic envi­ron­ment built on its cher­ished val­ues and unique her­itage, wel­com­ing cam­pus on the old­est con­tin­u­ous site of higher edu­ca­tion in Florida, cham­pi­onship ath­let­ics, and prime loca­tion in the heart of the state capital.

    Com­bin­ing tra­di­tional strength in the arts and human­i­ties with rec­og­nized lead­er­ship in the sci­ences, Florida State Uni­ver­sity pro­vides unmatched oppor­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents and fac­ulty through chal­leng­ing aca­d­e­mics, cul­tural dis­cov­ery and com­mu­nity interaction.

    Under­ly­ing and sup­port­ing the edu­ca­tional expe­ri­ence at Florida State Uni­ver­sity is the devel­op­ment of new gen­er­a­tions of cit­i­zen lead­ers, based on the con­cepts inscribed in our seal: Vires, Artes, MoresStrength, Skill and Char­ac­ter.

    Epit­o­mized by recently named Rhodes Schol­ars Gar­rett John­son and Myron Rolle — elite ath­letes and schol­ars com­mit­ted to pub­lic ser­vice — and Joseph O’Shea — a cam­pus and com­mu­nity leader as well as a top scholar — Florida State’s 40,000 stu­dents are ded­i­cated to aca­d­e­mic excel­lence and pro­vid­ing lead­er­ship in our com­plex world.

    Florida State University’s 16 col­leges offer more than 275 under­grad­u­ate, grad­u­ate, doc­toral, pro­fes­sional and spe­cial­ist degree pro­grams, includ­ing med­i­cine and law, cov­er­ing a broad array of dis­ci­plines crit­i­cal to soci­ety today. Each year the Uni­ver­sity awards over 2,000 grad­u­ate and pro­fes­sional degrees.

    With its impres­sive breadth of lead­ing grad­u­ate, pro­fes­sional and under­grad­u­ate pro­grams, Florida State Uni­ver­sity is a demand­ing, intel­lec­tu­ally stim­u­lat­ing, yet warm and car­ing envi­ron­ment for stu­dents and fac­ulty. Rec­og­nized nation­ally for its com­mit­ment to diver­sity, Florida State Uni­ver­sity is a national leader in the num­ber of doc­tor­ates awarded to African-​American stu­dents and in the grad­u­a­tion rate of African-​American under­grad­u­ates. Its Col­lege of Med­i­cine and Col­lege of Law are ranked in the nation’s Top 10 for His­panic stu­dents.

    Florida State University’s arts pro­grams — dance, film, music and the­atre — rank among the finest in the world, offer­ing an arts edu­ca­tion com­pa­ra­ble to lead­ing con­ser­va­to­ries. Its cre­ative writ­ing pro­gram is ranked among the nation’s best and is home to the most con­sis­tently hon­ored and pub­lished stu­dent body in the United States. Florida State is respon­si­ble for gov­er­nance of the John and Mable Rin­gling Museum of Art and asso­ci­ated arts pro­grams, one of the largest museum/​university com­plexes in the nation.

    Other pro­grams con­sis­tently included in the top pub­lic uni­ver­sity list include physics, chem­istry, polit­i­cal sci­ence, psy­chol­ogy, crim­i­nol­ogy, pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion, library sci­ence, infor­ma­tion, human sci­ences, busi­ness and law.

    At the Ph.D. level, inter­dis­ci­pli­nary pro­grams draw on notable research fac­ulty strengths that tran­scend the tra­di­tional dis­ci­plines, includ­ing neu­ro­science, mol­e­c­u­lar bio­physics, com­pu­ta­tional sci­ence, mate­ri­als sci­ence and research at the National High Mag­netic Field Lab­o­ra­tory—home to the world’s most pow­er­ful magnets.
