The program was initiated by the Florida State University School of Theatre in Tallahassee in 1968 and moved to Sarasota five years later to establish a permanent relationship with the Asolo Repertory Theatre.[1] It is currently housed in the Florida State University Center for the Performing Arts, which is a multi-theater complex, located on The Ringling property which is managed by Florida State University http://www.ringling.org/

In 2012, the program was named one of the top 25 drama schools in the world by The Hollywood Reporter. [2] At last listing by the U.S. News & World Report, it was ranked 6th among MFA Acting programs in the United States.[citation needed]
