Full Sail University offers an educational experience unlike any other.
Our philosophy centers on recognizing the value in creative thinking and the importance of hands-on experience. We put this into action with an approach that emphasizes problem-solving, learning by doing, and empowering our students to generate their own concepts and ideas.
Love what you do? You’ll fit right in here.
Being proudly passionate about something can make you feel like an anomaly, but this is a community of people who are just as dedicated as you are. Whether you’re working on a project with classmates, contributing your talents to a production team, or bouncing ideas around with your instructor, you’ll be building meaningful connections that can continue beyond graduation.
Build knowledge by building experience.
Every part of your degree program is designed to look, feel, and function like your industry – from your workspaces, to your projects, to your schedule.
How do we stay connected? Through Program Advisory Committees: active professionals that regularly work with us to keep our degrees relevant. Educators who continue to create and contribute to to their fields. And an emphasis on portfolio projects that prove your experience to future employers.
Our degree programs are offered at a faster pace than traditional schools, so that students adapt to the 24/7 nature of their industries.
A bachelor’s degree can take 20 months instead of four years. You’re learning more in a shorter period of time, and starting out on your professional path earlier.
It’s amazing how technological advances give us new pathways to learn and create.
Since the beginning, we’ve always emphasized the importance of learning in professional environments, using relevant creative tools and software. Be sure to check your potential degree program’s online information to get a listing of software and technology included in your LaunchBox.

Now in its 22nd year, the Vans Warped Tour is the largest traveling and longest-running music festival in the United States, featuring bands like Falling In Reverse, Sleeping With Sirens, and Set It Off. Since 2012, Full Sail's relationship with the Vans Warped Tour has led to numerous internship opportunities, and in early 2016, the Vans Warped Tour lineup was revealed during a live webcast from Full Sail University’s campus.
