Learning at Full Sail
A Fast and Focused Education
- Our degree programs are offered at an accelerated pace, which allows you to graduate in approximately half the time of a traditional bachelor's program.
- Courses are designed in a specific "building block" order, so your instructors understand where you are in your educational journey.
- Our programs contain more credit hours per month than traditional universities, helping you prepare for the 24/7 nature of your industry.
Each of our campus and online degree programs has a set schedule of courses that each student takes in the same order. First, there are foundational courses, then you refine your skills based on your career goals.
Your program's predetermined course order also means there's no registration stress or worry about course availability.
Undergraduate programs are designed with a series of Project and Portfolio classes, which keeps students creating throughout their program. As you move through the curriculum, you'll build a professional portfolio that can help you as you start your career. Graduate programs are similarly designed around capstone, thesis, or portfolio courses, which focus your work toward a final, real-world result.
We offer both campus and online programs across a wide variety of disciplines, so you can pursue your education from wherever you are. Whether you attend Full Sail on our campus in Winter Park, Florida, or from across the country, you’ll get the same access to industry experts, relevant and current curriculum, and industry-experienced instructors.
Both campus and online students take part in Project LaunchBox, a Full Sail program that provides students with powerful, degree-specific technology so you can be creative whenever inspiration strikes. All of your files, multimedia creations, and coursework are at your fingertips, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We want you to be ready for your career before you graduate, so we build professional development into our undergraduate degrees, including career modules such as Résumé Fundamentals, Networking, Personal Branding, and more.
Our creative network includes students, alumni, educators, advisors, and guest speakers, and our dedicated career advisors help students connect with companies looking for talent. We also host exclusive career events throughout the year featuring companies like Microsoft Game Studios, Fox Sports Florida, and IBM. Graduates can also stay engaged and connected through the Alumni Network.
Our educators bring knowledge and extensive professional experience to the table. They share a philosophy that teaching is less about lecturing and repetition, and more about coaching and mentorship.
Full Sail’s industry expertise also comes from beyond the classroom, through industry advisors – outside pros who stay engaged with our educators to give feedback about changes, advances, and trends, so our curriculum can stay current and relevant for our students.
