Florida International University
FIU started with a vision to build a public university in Miami, an institution that could create opportunity for an evolving, dynamic city. Half a century later, that vision became a Carnegie Foundation top-ranked research university. What started on an abandoned airstrip became a leading cultural institution, a community of 200,000 alumni and a solution center for the challenges of the future.
Explore the fringes of space, work to improve the health of our community's most underserved populations or defend the accused in a court of law. FIU offers more than 190 degree programs - many available online - so that you'll be ready for wherever the future takes you.
