Three New Online Degree Programs Launching

Full Sail University is proud to announce the launches of three new online degree programs: the Media Communications Bachelor of Science, the Public Relations Master of Arts, and the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Master of Science.

The 28-month Media Communications Bachelor of Science online degree prepares students with the knowledge to understand the field of media communications and to use new media communication technologies. The degree program's courses focus on theories of aesthetics and communication, as well as the workflow processes involved in creative project management, including graphic design, web design, digital video, and sound.

"The Media Communications Bachelor of Science degree was designed for the student with an interest in all things related to media communications," says Media Communications Program Manager Kathy Craven. "The program contains a wonderful array of courses, and comfortably feeds into any and all of Full Sail's master's degree programs."

The Public Relations Master of Arts online degree program is designed to give students an understanding of the foundations of traditional PR methods along with the social media skills professionals need in order to be on the forefront of the communications industry. Throughout the 12-month program, students will examine new digital tools to produce and distribute content, learn how to execute and evaluate effective PR media plans, and leverage social media to create powerful dialogues with an organization's publics and stakeholders.

"Full Sail's Public Relations Master of Arts degree is debuting at a time when the market is in the midst of a dynamic surge in PR opportunities for our graduates," says Ryan Kitelyn, Program Director for Public Relations. "This challenging degree taps the creativity of individuals who are poised to have their clients' content and brand shared on the world stage through a variety of media. It's not enough to host a press conference – world-wide exposure is now transmedia, multi-faceted, and often launched from a mobile device."

The 12-month Innovation & Entrepreneurship Master of Science online degree program leads students from the initial conceptual stages of a tech or creative product or service, all the way to a full-fledged business plan that can be pitched to potential investors. Program courses focus on marketing strategies and ideation and feasibility studies, as well as the legal issues involved in innovative entrepreneurship.

"In today's highly competitive economy, business literacy is not an option – it's a requirement," says Program Director Ron Cook. "The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Master of Science degree program is designed for students interested in creating technology and information-based projects and companies, as well as those who seek leadership roles as 'intrapreneurs' in established companies."
