Education / Research


Florida State University is designated a “Doctoral/Research University-Extensive” by the Carnegie Foundation, the highest status attributed to a doctoral-granting university. Research at the College of Education is at the forefront of today’s important issues in education.

Faculty members pursue research and scholarship that expands the frontiers of knowledge in their areas of expertise. Their innovative methods of inquiry enrich and inform education at every level — from classroom teaching to policy reform — and their achievements gain national and international recognition.

Faculty are consistently funded through agencies such as the U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation – which allows the College to engage in groundbreaking research in educational techniques, teacher preparation, educational policy and scientific inquiry.

Graduate students receive first-rate mentoring and instruction that enable them to hone their scholarship skills and become future leaders in education research. There are also many ways for undergraduate students to get involved with research at the College of Education.

Research can culminate in numerous ways. Published manuscripts, oral presentations and exhibited posters are just a few of the ways that project results can be shared with the public and the scholarly community.

Take a look at the important work being done by our faculty and students to promote and enhance the quality of education in the state of Florida and across the nation.
