Full Sail University offers a residency program as an opportunity for an industry expert to sabbatical as a mentor in the Final Project courses.
We have embarked on a very unique program of study for our students in the Game Development Bachelor’s, Game Art Bachelor’s, and Game Design Master’s programs. To provide students with an environment that enables them to apply their education in a realistic atmosphere, we have combined the Final Project courses in these three programs, allowing students to take on the roles of Producer, Artist and Programmer while working together in the creation of a computer video game.
Final Project is a five-month game-production cycle that provides each student with the experience of working in a team-centered studio. In any given month, Full Sail has five different studio groups working on games at different stages in the development process. The culminating event of each process is the presentation of a game to university faculty, staff, and their colleagues.
The primary role of our industry expert residents will be to assist the Final Project faculty with the students’ progression through this experience, offering insight and expertise along the way.
Full Sail strongly believes this residency program is an important tool in the educational experience of our students. This program is open to a wide variety of industry disciplines, so as to provide students with the opportunity to come in contact with people working in fields that directly relate to their career interests.
