Full Sail University began 1979 in Dayton, Ohio, as an audio recording workshop. It provided unparalleled opportunity for students to become familiar with the industry through real-world experience in professional studio environments. Full Sail eventually relocated to Central Florida, planting roots in its current Winter Park location in 1989. Its project-based, relevant educational philosophy was readily adapted to other fields in entertainment and media from filmmaking, to digital media, to entertainment business which combined time working on real-world environments with instruction by industry veterans. Today, Full Sail University offers associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees designed for evolving industries across entertainment, media, art, and technology.
Full Sail University's mission is to provide students with an innovative style of education that addresses opportunities in evolving industries worldwide. Our degree programs embrace the role of creativity throughout fields ranging from art and design, to music and recording, to business and technology. Each program is designed to enable creative-problem solving through relevant, project-based coursework using industry technology and workflow.
