Full Sail University

People from around the world come to Full Sail to pursue their educational goals, and they share one thing in common – a passion for creative careers in the entertainment and media industry. Full Sail’s mission is to provide students with an innovative style of education, delivered by a staff of dedicated individuals that addresses the career opportunities available in an ever-growing, constantly evolving industry. We do this by developing unique curricula that combine elements of creativity, art, business and life skills, technical prowess, and academic achievement. Our education is delivered via immersive teaching methods, both in Full Sail’s real world production studios and classrooms, as well as through our online learning environment. Every one of our degree programs is designed to provide students with knowledge and real world experience that will help them realize their career goals in the entertainment and media industry.


More than 30 years ago, Full Sail began as a dream to create a place where people could learn how to take their passion for entertainment and turn it into a career they loved. It started with music and sound, but our dream quickly grew to fit the dreams of our students until it was bigger than we could have ever imagined.

Film, design, show production, games, animation, web design, the business of the entertainment world … as the years go by, the dream continues to grow, and we are humbled by the success of our graduates as well as the passion of our teachers and mentors, all of whom contribute to making this one of the most unique educational communities on the planet.

Today, people from all over the world come to Full Sail to pursue their passion, create the art they love, and share ideas with like-minded individuals. Once they step onto our campus, they quickly discover the benefits of learning and creating in a place where students are studying every aspect of this unique industry.

At Full Sail, just like in the real world, projects come together as a result of a team effort - multiple people using their individual skills toward a common vision. You may know exactly what you love, but while you’re here, you’ll be exposed to other students with their own passion and talents, and experiencing that kind of diversity can help you expand your own skills.to take their p


We believe that dull environments produce dull ideas. So whether you’re working, studying, or just relaxing on campus, we’ve strived to create inspiring spaces designed to nurture your creative spark.

Our production environments are on par with the best in the world, and this is where you’ll develop your skills and give your dreams life. The big idea is to start working and acting like a professional while you’re still in school. That way you’re comfortable, prepared, and have the best possible chance to succeed once you’re out there.

Full Sail’s campus is outfitted with world-class studios and production spaces, and as a result, we often have companies interested in producing their projects on campus. But, more importantly, the entertainment media industry is fully integrated into daily life at Full Sail.

Student Life

Full Sail University is surrounded by plenty of apartment complexes, some of which are literally walking distance away. Grocery stores and other essentials are also right where you need them, as well as budget-friendly food options. Plus, if you prefer to be on two wheels, you can hop on a bike trail to do a little exploration.

Whether you need breakfast, a caffeine boost, or a little something for your sweet tooth, you can refuel at multiple stops on campus. And if you need some time to pop in your earbuds and focus – or hold a brainstorming session outside of class – there are lots of comfortable spots around Full Sail for you to get the creativity flowing.

Day and night, Full Sail's campus is host to many activities and events – including guest speakers and lecturers, workshops, film nights, award show parties, and more. So whether your goal is to build your network, learn about the industry, or hang with likeminded people, you'll find no shortage of opportunities to do so.
