Since 1957, the Higher Education program has upheld a tradition of excellence in preparing students for academic, professional, and policy positions both in the higher education arena.

At FSU you'll find small classes, amazing faculty, diverse assistantship opportunities, and a focus on providing a level of both scholarly and practical experience that will distinguish you as a future professional, researcher, or faculty member. 

But most importantly, we're a family.  

Ask our current students how or why they're here and they'll tell you about the people- the people who got them to apply to FSU and the people they've met since joining the FSU family. 

Affectionately known as the "LifeNet," our massive network of proud alumni are spread across the country and serve as mentors and professional resources to current students. They are vice presidents and deans, top leaders in professional associations and advocacy environments, and some of the best faculty in the nation. And they started here at Florida State University.

We hope you'll start your future here, too.
