Whether it’s video games, film, recording, art and design, web technology, or the business behind music and entertainment, Full Sail University’s campus and online degree programs offer immersive educational experiences centered around the needs of the entertainment and media industry.
Located in Winter Park, Florida (just minutes from Orlando), the Full Sail campus has the look and feel of a creative studio environment, complete with industry-standard recording studios, spacious film soundstages, a motion capture studio, game studios, and a professional performing arts venue – all housed in a 191-acre multimedia complex.
Both campus and online students work within Full Sail’s interactive online-based platform. Since students all use the same online learning system, it allows us to push the boundaries with our course content – offering a truly multimedia learning experience.
Through Project LaunchBox™, both campus and online students receive a MacBook Pro pre-equipped with professional software at a deep institutional discount. The Mac serves as a personal workstation, allowing students to work and create wherever they are.
From assisting with production on the nationally syndicated Daily Buzz (filmed on campus), to working alongside ESPN pros on game intros, to designing motion graphics for the Orlando Magic, to working with lights, sound, and set design at our Live Venue, a number of students are able to gain experience on real-world, high-profile projects. Online students work within project based curricula, which can mean doing branding work for a local business, building useable game assets, promoting and managing a band, or launching an Internet marketing company. The goal is for students to graduate with real work that can be presented to a potential employer.
