Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2016

Full Sail Univerity is an amazing cutting edge school with that truly offers students the "real world education" that they speak of. Full Sail also offers a "Project Launch Box" which allows you to get a new laptop and the associated programs that you'll need for your studies which I believe to be fan-freaking-tastic! The accelerated programs allows you to get your education at a fraction of the time as traditional insitution which is great! - But I must warn you to be prepared to have a limited social life for anything outside of Full Sail and your career path during your enrollment. Every teacher at Full Sail is very knowledgeable about her or her industry and every single one that I've come across still actively works within their chosen industry in addition to teaching at Full Sail. If you're looking to get into the film industry as a Grip, Production Designer, etc. then I would recomend the Film Bachelors, but if you want to be a Director or Producer then the Film Production MFA would be better suitted for you; of course you're welcome to take both as well. Please note, that this is one of those, "you get out of it what you put into it schools" so if you are truly passionate about what you are looking to study here then I would give it the highest possible recommendation. If you are just kind of interested in a subject or are only hoping to take advantage of the Career Development team thinking they will get you a job then I wouldn't suggest this school for you... Career Development will surely send you leads and help prepare you for the interview etc. - but you have to land the job, you have to have the portfolio together. There are limitless opportunities here at Full Sail for every degree program so if you're interested, take a Behind The Scenes Tour and aim to be an overachiever. You won't go wrong there. Best school ever!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

The Entertainment Business Master's degree at Full Sail is a one year program. The professors at Full Sail are all masters of their craft. You become very close with your peers and help one another to accomplish each others dreams. Full Sail offers many oppertunites to meet industry leaders. In addition, you get hands on learning that prepares you for the work force. I would recommend this school to anyone. You get what you put into it.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2010

I thought it was a great experience. I did their online program as opposed to going to their brick and mortar institution, but it felt as though I got the same education and care from instructors online as I would have in person. I definitely learned a lot, and have been able to put most of it to use in some way or another.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

I enjoyed my time at Full Sail, but in all honesty, I wish I had gone somewhere else. Career development has been less than helpful in finding me a job in my field. Taking classes online, you only learn as much as you put into it. If you're very dedicated, it's a good place to attend, but be aware that you will do a lot of leg work on your own.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

It was very helpful and covered all the areas needed for my Degree. Everyone I came into contact with was very helpful and most of the teachers seemed like they genuinely cared! About the only thing I have been unsure about is if it was worth being in this much debt? Especially since I'm not in the career that I went to school for.. but knowledge is power at least and I can say I have that.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2009

Full Sail University is very expensive and I am still paying off the student loans. My degree did get me out of the corporate law world and into a job in the entertainment business, but I still wonder whether it was worth the high debt. The classes are good: this is not a diploma mill, you actually have to do the work, and you will learn about the entertainment business if you apply yourself.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

I do not feel I got my monies worth. They did not do anything to help me find a career after, and communication among staff and students was scarce when I attended classes.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008

The one thing that I liked about my college was that they provide a wide and unique range of specialized degrees.
