From the School

With 12-month master's degree programs in the worlds of media and communications, games, tech, film and television, marketing, and business, Full Sail University is dedicated to graduate students who want more than the status quo. Our career-focused approach prepares students with real-world industry experience and the creative problem-solving skills they need to take their careers to the next level.

We're not your average university. Our online and on-campus degree programs are accelerated, courses are project-based, and curriculum is hands-on. That means graduate students can start and finish their degree faster, build a strong portfolio, and get industry insights from professors with extensive, up-to-date experience in their field.

For more than 12 years, our online degree programs have demonstrated Full Sail's commitment to a fast-paced, immersive learning experience with 24/7 flexibility. Classes combine real-time interaction and collaboration with professors and classmates. And with Project Launchbox included, online students get the software and industry technologies they need to create anywhere.

Located in sunny Winter Park, Florida, Full Sail was founded in 1979. Throughout our history, Full Sail has received accolades including awards for top schools in game design, game development, music, film, graphic design, and animation, and has been named "School/College of the Year" by FAPSC. Full Sail's graduates have earned credits that include work on Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, ADDY, MTV Video Music Award, and Video Game Award nominated and winning projects.
