4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2013

I already had a degree, so my pursuing a degree with Full Sail wasnt to just add another line to my resume. I wanted, and needed, something hands-on, something more than just theories and information you memorize for a test. I needed real world application. And thats exactly what Full Sail offered. All the classes in its Masters of New Media Journalism program were directly relevant to the skills I needed to learn - there was no fluff. On top of that, the university offers free lifetime learning after graduation. The fact that I can continue sharpening my skills and learning new technologies while in the workforce, at any point in my career, is completely worth it!

I Completely enjoyed my time at Full Sail University. I came from Puerto Rico, insecure of the language but everybody was so welcoming . I felt safe and sound. The level of experience of the instructors is amazing. They help through everything . The Career advising team is amazing, especially Kathryn Aho who helped me getting the job I have now. Is also a campus that has a lot of diversity. I honestly would say this. Full sail is the best place to network with students and instructors. I am so happy that I made this decision.

I'm a 40 year old service connected disabled veteran, and when I decided to go back to school to pursue my Bachelor's of Science degree, I was already in competition with fresh minds coming directly out of high school. Add to it that I have 3 sons, two jobs, and a world of responsibility...well you can only imagine how tough it was at times to focus. However, despite my struggles, I applied myself and graduated Salutatorian (second highest GPA in my graduating class with a 3.91 GPA), and now have decide to return for my Masters degree. What was my secret? By contacting professors and fellow students directly via phone or Google Hangout/Skype, and using private boards on social media, I was able to create a digital "brick and mortar" classroom for myself, which allowed for more focus on studies while keeping it fun and creative. Full Sail University professors utilize Go To Meeting for most of the interactive course teaching so that students can learn in real time and ask questions. If not for these steps, I most certainly would have failed.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2017

I have enjoyed my time at Full Sail University. It has given me the skills to pursue jobs with higher skill-set requirements. Though I have not seen an immediate return on investment, I am confident that it will give me the growth opportunity I am looking for.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Full Sail University is an awesome school that i attending. Full Sail University provided me with a great experience in pursuing my master's degree in Business Intelligence. This online program was a fast track program that provide a powerful punch of information along with providing you the opportunity to practice what you have learned as you work toward your final capstone project. The capstone project provides you with an opportunity to put to practice what you have learned during the entire program. The advisors and professors encourage you to reach out for any assistance during the entire program. As the 9/2016 Class Valedictorian and Academic Achievement Award Recipient for the Master of Business Intelligence Program, I would highly recommend future student to consider attending Full Sail University.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoyed working on real world deliverables such as writing professional blogs, business plans, and branding. However, I felt the program was overpriced for the value. It's been hard for me to find work in this career area. I think I would have enjoyed a better student experience if I would have had on-campus classes as opposed to just online.

This school provides a great real world experience with the style of projects and assignments. The coursework is accelerated but highly detailed. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and up-to-date on industry trends. The school's community provides networking opportunities all over the country.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2009

The degree is very expensive but if you want to work in the entertainment business it can get you through the door. I now work in the entertainment business and have since shortly after graduating. Since the school has students in many places and time zones you learn valuable skills for today's international business environment.

This school is extremely expensive. You learn a lot in a short period of time. Online learning is great. Don't get behind on assignments otherwise its extremely hard to catch up.
