    Great communities start with great schools. Great schools start with great teachers.


    We know a lot of people like you – people driven to teach, answering the noble call of inspiring others. The FSU College of Education is filled with students compelled to educate the world and make a difference in the lives of future generations.

    Here in the FSU College of Education, you’ll find your home away from home. Our close-knit community offers a small school atmosphere rarely found at a major research university, providing you with unique and valuable experiences both in and out of the classroom.

    In our BS/MS teacher education pathways, you can complete a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree at the same time, shortening the time typically required to earn both degrees. Less time = less money needed for tuition.

    For the money you will need, we’re here to help. The FSU College of Education offers over $400,000 annually in scholarship and fellowship opportunities — more than any other public College of Education in Florida.

    But shorter time to graduation isn’t the only benefit. With a master’s degree, you’ll be able to:

    • Increase your earning potential. Teachers with master’s degrees can earn as much as 44% more than those holding only bachelor’s degrees.
    • Become a more effective teacher. Research shows that effective teachers help students become better learners not only in the classroom, but throughout their lives. This effectiveness comes with time and practice, which you’ll get in our programs through hands-on field experiences each semester.
    • Expand your career opportunities. A master’s degree will enhance your teaching skills and provide you with more job opportunities than you would have with just a bachelor’s, such as leadership roles in school districts, state education agencies, corporate or non-profit organizations, or higher education institutions.

    With five different majors to choose from, you’re sure to find a program that fuels your passion for helping others. Click the links below to learn more about each of our BS/MS teacher education pathways:

    Want to teach Math or Science? Check out the FSU-Teach program!

    With FSU-Teach, you’ll expand your options, not your time. This program allows you to pursue a double major in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geoscience, Mathematics or Physics AND secondary teaching at the same time. No additional hours are required, and you can still graduate with your content degree in four years. That means you’ll have more career options after graduation — you’ll be able to go directly into teaching, a STEM profession, or graduate school.
