For over 130 years, Florida Southern has been preparing students to succeed as leaders in a wide range of fields: business, government, education, healthcare, science and technology, the arts, and the church. Indeed, it has thrived as the oldest private college in Florida because of its capacity to respond to the needs of students and the communities where they will serve.
Florida Southern has always seen a holistic educational experience as the best way to meet these needs, and its commitment to fostering students’ intellectual, moral, and spiritual growth continues in this new global century. At the heart of the educational experience is Florida Southern’s distinctive synthesis of liberal and professional learning, which is delivered through an engaged learning model that is widely recognized as one of the best in the country. The core academic experience is complemented by an extensive study abroad program, by exceptional co-curricular and service opportunities, and by vibrant religious life and artistic offerings—all of which are designed to help you connect what you are learning in the classroom with the world outside of it.
The mission of Florida Southern is to empower students to make a positive and consequential impact on the world, and we know that the holistic, integrated experience that we provide can prepare you to do just that. The outstanding achievements of our alumni offer living proof.
