Your passion, your future - here.

In the College of Human Sciences, we study every aspect of peoples' daily lives; how they interact with their families and communities, how they dress, how they exercise, and how they eat. Internships, practicums, special projects and research opportunities allow our students to obtain practical experience, present their work to others, publish, and build contacts in the industry and academic communities. As a graduate student you will work closely with faculty members. Therefore, it is important your interests align. We recommend that you view Faculty CVs before applying.

A visit to campus is highly encouraged.

  • We offer annual opportunities, such as Graduate Showcase and Research & Creativity Day, for you to learn about our graduate programs and meet our current students.
  • We participate in FSU's Graduate and Professional Career Fair held every October.
