Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2015

Full Sail University is an artistic school that have helped many students to achieve their dreams. I am one of them who have struggled in life due to my factors such like discriminations because I am lesbian and woman with hispanic background. For many years I always wanted to become a graduate student who one day will give a hand to those people who are in need of love, financial support, motivation, like I was before. Full Sail University is a school where professors and students maintain a pleasant and bright connection that reaffirm the student's motivation to continue with his/her path in life. Thank you for reading me. Regards, Claude

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of Full Sail University Public Relations Master's Program, students will have an hands on experience such as video and personal branding projects during the course of the program. This will help students to showcase their techniques, talents, and skills to help them in their career field in Public Relations/Media Communications. The professors are very supportive and their willingness to help students with any questions or problems is over my expectations. The cons of Full Sail University Public Relations Program, in general, the program is expensive. However, the experience is worth the money and you can continue going to Full Sail for refresher courses for free for a lifetime. Another con that my be difficult for potential students who work full-time. This program does require additional 30 to 40 hours total of your time. Taking this course is like having another full-time job. Speaking from experience, it was difficult at first but it is easy to adjust with in three months of the program. Going to Full Sail University is a great experience. When you enroll in the program it is fast and easy. You are expected to graduate within a year. I started classes on August 3, 2015 and I will be finished August 5, 2016.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

I attend the online MFA in Creative Writing program. This is very work intensive but enjoyable. The instructors work in the field. My current Instructor is a WGA member and Founder of the WGA mentor program. My instructors know how hard it is to break into the business and they let you know this. Their encouragement gives one confidence. We are taught every aspect of writing for many fields such as TV, Film, Games, Comic Books, and Novels and Short Stories. Full Sail University has many areas of study for the arts and entertainments fields. After each class, I have a sense of accomplishment. I would highly recommend this University to anyone either on campus or off. They have a great career development department, which is very helpful.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

The Creative Writing MFA program through Full Sail University has stretched me to be a better writer. You are going to get what you put into the program. Working on your masters online puts the responsibility on you. I put the time into doing the most I can and I know in the end I will be happy that I choose Full Sail.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The Full Sail University online program for Entertainment Business is a very enriching program for students seeking to become leaders in the entertainment industry. The program is very hands on and the assignments truly allow you to think within industry standards. Their online classroom system is very user friendly and promotes healthy interactions with classmates. The only drawback for online education is that not having the same amount of human connection you would in a real classroom. But this can be solved by making effort to reach out to your professors and classmates via email, phone, or skype. Overall, Full Sail University is providing me the education that I was seeking and am more than satisfied by their delivery.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Industry standard programs and hardware. Textbooks included with tuition (computer is additional, but it's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you get it from the school), so you don't have to worry about ordering your books yourself. Teachers have industry experience. Networking is fun and effective. Public transportation. Cons: If you use VA benefits, the advisors are hard to get in touch with. Career support is going as good as the places you already/trying to live. Don't try to get TWO jobs, it's not going to happen. High-priced living area (location, location, location). Tip: Even though interning requires your coursework to be fully completed, apply for internships anyway, so if you graduate before the start of the internship you have a chances at being selected because you applied early. Also, the theme parks are a good side job, but some require you to work 90 days without a schedule change. If that's something you're interested in, work the 90 days before you start school so you change your availability to fit your school schedule. I recommend Universal Studios.
