Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University was founded as the State Normal College for Colored Students, and on October 3, 1887, it began classes with fifteen students and two instructors. Today, FAMU, as it has become affectionately known, is the premiere school among historically black colleges and universities.

A wide range of academic degree programs makes FAMU a good choice for students. Students seeking a challenging academic foundation will find a variety of programs to meet their career objectives at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. The University offers 54 bachelor's degrees, 29 master's degrees, three professional degrees, and 12 doctoral programs in a wide range of academic areas. The most popular undergraduate programs are business administration, biology, criminal justice, and allied health. Other majors are available in every field, from animal science to engineering and nursing. Additionally, the school offers several distinctive degree programs. These include such majors as jazz studies, cardiopulmonary sciences, journalism and health informatics and management.

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is home to a wide variety of institutes and centers where faculty and students conduct research to develop real-world solutions to society?s challenges. The newest addition is the Sustainability Institute, which will focus on economic growth and job creation by seeking solutions through a multi-partnership effort that includes external and internal strategic alliances. Students and faculty will work closely with international stakeholders to provide solutions to global socio-economic, ecological, and energy sustainability issues.

In addition to being one of the most beautiful college campuses in the nation, FAMU students have the opportunity to actively engage in a broad range of educational or recreational activities. There are more than 100 recognized student clubs and organizations at FAMU, and the Office of Student Activities provides leadership training opportunities, funding, and other benefits to ensure that student life is as dynamic as possible.

FAMU students have access to excitement and fun every day at the Student Union, which houses a bowling alley, ballroom, hair salon, and television room, to name a few. This building is also the home of the FAMU student government, making it the center of a well-rounded campus life.

In addition to the main Tallahassee campus, FAMU has several satellite campuses across Florida. These include the College of Law in Orlando and the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (COPPS), which has sites in Crestview, Tampa, Jacksonville, and Miami.

Prominently located on the highest hill in Florida?s capital city of Tallahassee, Florida A&M University remains the only historically black university in the eleven-member State University System of Florida.
