Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2011

The online program was convenient and challenging for me. The EMDT program gave me opportunities to use current technology in the classroom and utilize teaching 21st century skills with my students. The only con would be the expense of the program compared to similar programs. I believe I could have found a similar program with a lower tuition.

The graduate program is for people who like to work at breakneck speeds. However, the course is very fulfilling and I'm proud to say that I graduated.

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2014

Before I start explaining the pro's and con's, I want to mention that I did not rate all categories. Categories, such as Transportation and Surrounding area's, etc. that deal with being on Campus I have not rated. For pro's, I really love the 24/7 support given to each of the students. Whenever I'm having a technical issue, one send of an email, I'm emailed back 5 minutes later each and every time. Everything is always running greatly, we do have time to chat with our class mates at least once a week in our discussion area, which always deals with graded work. The work itself is very challenging and we tend to receive about 8 to 12 hours of work a week, and each project a week takes about half that time. As for the con's, I only have one really big con and that's if their online teachers are also campus teachers. When they place their online teachers as campus teachers as well, they spend less time with online students. Not all professors are like this, but the ones that do are only in maybe twice a week to answer questions. Other than that, I really love Full Sail University, I've been to another online school and didn't find it very "fun" as the school work was all irrelevant, while FSO targets their work based on the industry of whichever you're getting yourself into. It's a fantastic school!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2013

I'm in the Entertainment Business Masters program at Full Sail University. I have learned more useful information in two months here than in 4 years of undergraduate work at another university. The faculty is great and extremely helpful. Most of the faculty has worked and currently works in the industry so the information and knowledge you are getting is coming from people who have been successful. Plus they also are able to help you network through their connections.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

The Pros of my graduate program is that we are able to gain knowledge and tap into the network of instructors with REAL LIFE career experience. All of my peers have the same focus and love, which is the entertainment industry. We are given many opportunities to advance and that makes it special. I honestly don't have any cons about my graduate program. Everything about the program is amazing and it allows me to express myself as a creative student.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of my current graduate program is that I am online and the course program allows me to work during while still being able to attend classes and submit assignments weekly. I am enrolled in an accelerated program which is completed in one year, there seems like little time during the day after because of the workload that's due for credit.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE to the extreme! I love this school, and this is my second program with them. I was amazed to discover that the bulk of the student body embraces the ADHD mind, and most of those minds THRIVE in this environment. Cons: I'm a non-traditional student, having two kids of my own and nearing 40. I would love to be on campus, however, their online platform is unparalleled...

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2013

The pro of my graduate program is the flexibility of it being online, the healthy level of support and accountability received by faculty and student colleagues. The con of my graduate program is that I do not get a chance to experience campus life in the natural, but it is very much alive online.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2012

Full Sail University is very technically advance institution. We were able to learn many techniques that applied to the current market. The workload was very heavy; however, we were taking a very accelerated program that included a 4 week format per class. Overall, I am very pleased with my degree.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I really enjoy being at Full Sail, there are more opportunities here than I can take advantage of (a good thing). If you are determined and work hard, it will be noticed and you will be rewarded. I wish there was student housing.
