Certificate in Policy Studies, MS
The Master's of Science degree focuses on the development of knowledge and competence in the administration of higher education institutions. Students gain practical experience relating theory to practice in three required internships in administrative offices at Florida State University and at other institutions of the student's choice. Practical experiences gained trough graduate assistantships, other part-time employment, and internships are an integral and important part of the master's program. This non-thesis degree requires 45 semester hours of graduate credit and take two years (including on summer) to complete. In addition to required core courses, students select a specialty area of concentration as part of preparation. A synthesis paper on each internship takes the place of a comprehensive examination.
