College of Social Sciences and Public Policy

The Career Center, in conjunction with the Division of Student Affairs and Institutional Research, has administered a survey to graduating seniors for over a decade, asking students about their post-college plans and their overall FSU experience. Beginning in fall 2012 in collaboration with Academic Affairs, the survey was added as a graduation requirement.

Over 93% of graduating seniors from summer 2015, fall 2015, and spring 2016 completed the survey. Also included in these findings are the results of a six-month follow-up survey. Below is a summary of the findings.

Note: Data for Colleges/Departments with fewer than ten student respondents have been redacted to protect student confidentiality.
