Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

I love the coursework. I also love how we don't have to write traditional papers, but blog posts. The school also sent New Media Journalism Students a MacBook Pro; camcorder; tripod; microsoft office suite; the adobe creative suite; an ipod touch; and a camera backpack with microphones and accessories needed. The school also provided a wordpress site with free hosting (for a year) for assignments. The coursework is hands on. I have to find people to interview each week. I also have to find research each week to support topics chosen. I struggle with finding the right people to interview, but I am getting better. The biggest struggle was covering a live event, especially when a) I have no car and B) I have to bring the kids along. Overall I love my school. I graduate this year. My major is 12 classes and each class lasts 4 weeks.I was enrolled in another private school before Full Sail, but got burned out quickly for financial reasons. I also did not want to spend another 4 years waiting to graduate.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2013

The work was intriguing and flexible. Most of the instructors were very helpful and personable. One big pro for this school is the events and seminars. They are quite frequent, often featuring highly accomplished guest speakers. Unfortunately, a con for the online programs specifically is that the vast majority of those seminars are only available to campus students.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2014

PRO - I've improved 300% has a writer, especially as it pertains to professional competitiveness and preparedness. (i.e. learnong protocol, formatting, industry standards, great books, etc.) PRO - Most of the staff and faculty are very nice, respecful and helpful. CON - There's not enough information on legalities, contracting and how to acutally make money as a writer. CON - Career Services doesn't seem very helpful. (Perhaps they're waiting for graduation to become more enthusiastic.)

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I absolutely LOVE this program because it completely online and accelerated meaning it only takes 12 months to get a Master's versus the typical 24 months. FSO online program allows student access to a variety of amenities such as the library/ resource center and career services.

Degree: Business

Pros of the program the curriculum gives you real world experience. It is set up so you are able to use what you learn immediately. Cons is the work load is very heavy and it can be overwhelming trying to complete everything.

The curriculum is great, but the work load is very heavy. You do learn a lot and get a real world experience.

So far I have taking 3 classes with Full Sail. I don't have anything negative to say about the program. Maybe the only cons that I have is that online program in general do not allow the student to interact with other students that much. Online program are more limited in interaction and that tends to bored a lot of students that prefer to attend classes in person and/or like the human interaction.

I love the school and it's one of the few online programs that actually provides me with an education that I can use immediately in my professional life. I wish they were a little bit better at helping students with a lot of financial need but otherwise it's an awesome school.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2013

Full Sail has truly opened my mind and exposed me to real world education. I have created a website and built and established my personal brand and have worked with a real company of my choice to assist with a PR campaign and initiative. I love Full Sail and their career development department is dedicated in making sure graduates are equipped with everything they need to be successful.
