Full Sail University



One of the top creative schools in the United States

Full Sail University is based in Winter Park, Florida, with courses available for the entertainment, media, arts, and technology industries. It was established in 1979 in Dayton, Ohio as an audio recording workshop taught by industry professionals for students to gain real-world experience in a professional setting. This still applies to Full Sail today, who pride themselves on a different approach to teaching than other universities. With lessons in critical thinking and hands-on experience being a crucial part of study, Full Sail University provides an education that prepares students for their future careers.

Full Sail University’s courses are taught on an accelerated model, with both undergraduate and graduate degrees taking about half the time to complete. Courses are available both on-campus and online, so students get to choose where they study with the same access to industry experts, relevant curriculum, and experienced instructors. Getting students ready for careers is a priority at Full Sail, with classes to build professional development included most courses. These include teaching Resume Fundamentals, Networking, Personal Branding, and more. As a fun and vibrant community with ample industry connections, Full Sail University is a perfect college for those wanting hands-on experience in an environment made to replicate an industry workplace.
