Welcome to the the Askew School of Public Administration and Policy.

We offer one of the oldest master's degrees in the country, dating back to 1947. We have an exciting variety of topics to study, nationally-known faculty, and tremendous students. We strive to promote ethical and competent leadership in the management of public and non-profit organizations through training that emphasizes the integration of theory and practice, creative problem solving, integrity and stewardship, and skills in research and administration.


Like our public university peers, FSU anticipates delivering a mix of synchronous and asynchronous Remote Instruction and Distance Learning classes, as well as traditional In-Person (Face to Face) classes in the Fall 2020 semester. A revised schedule will be published soon that identifies which courses will be taught in each mode. FSU and the Askew School of Public Administration and Policy continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and may need to revisit this mix of classes if conditions change. Regardless of the mode of instruction, the program remains committed to excellence in our course design and course delivery. We believe we are well-prepared to provide you the knowledge and skills required to succeed in the field, and we look forward to seeing you in the program this Fall.
