The Florida State University is a public and coeducational institution. It is a senior member of the ten state universities that compose the State University System of Florida. The main campus of the University is located in Tallahassee, the state's capital.

Florida State University and the Department of Psychology are committed to a policy of equal opportunity and pluralism, thus enhancing diversity and assuring a climate that values, and respects the worth and dignity of all persons.

During the last century the major universities in the Western world embraced a strong research orientation, and in psychology this has led to great progress in understanding the determinants of behavior. At Florida State University, psychology has always had a strong research focus. Psychology courses were offered at this institution as early as 1902 when it was named the Florida State College. The college catalogue for 1902-03 boasted that FSU established the first psychological laboratory in the state of Florida, and the description of the laboratory indicates that it was very well equipped. From that time through the present, the curriculum has provided their students with high-quality laboratory experiences in conjunction with many of the basic courses in psychology.

The Department of Psychology has extensive research and computing facilities available to faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students. The support facilities include fully staffed and equipped electronic, computer, and instrument design machine shops that are operated by the Psychology Department technology support group. Instruction in behavioral, physiological, and neuroanatomical techniques is provided both in formal course work and in laboratory settings. A molecular neuroscience laboratory provides equipment and training for studies of gene cloning and gene expression, as well as techniques to measure levels of hormones and neurotransmitters.

There has been established a psychological laboratory, the first one in Florida, which, with its apparatus and accessories, affords almost every opportunity for studying the different senses, memory, illusions, time relations, and the nervous system.
