About the college

The mission of the College of Applied Studies is to facilitate an academic environment that supports the development of personal, professional, and technical expertise that graduates will use in their professional careers.

The College of Applied Studies was established to enable Florida State University Panama City to respond to the educational needs of the citizens of Northwest Florida and beyond. FSU Panama City is a full-service regional campus of Florida State University, offering undergraduate- and graduate-level courses and programs. Programs and opportunities offered by The College of Applied Studies are available to students in Tallahassee, Panama City and online, leading to a nationally recognized Florida State University degree or certificate. Along with delivering the highest quality of education to its students, the college’s goal is to assist all students in developing the strength, skill and character needed to be leaders in our state and nation. Additional programs are currently being developed for the College of Applied Studies. Please visit this site frequently to learn more about these new opportunities as they become available.
