Full Sail Real World Education Program Review
Students at Full Sail will enjoy access to a large entertainment production facility that will allow them to pursue their dreams of working with and creating new music, films, games, animations and designs. The school provides students with the chance to work with other similarly inclined students and to maintain a balance between the more traditional artistic aspects of its programs and cutting edge technologies. Graduates of the programs at Full Sail should be equipped with all the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in their chosen career fields.
Jon Phelps started Full Sail in 1979, as a place where students could go to learn about the process of recording, mixing and marketing music. Over the years, the school has added many more programs in a wide variety of entertainment, media and computer-based careers. Thousands of students call the school’s Winter Park, Florida, campus home, and have access to the full spectrum of technology and equipment used in the entertainment industry.
Students at Full Sail will take courses in a bit of a different manner than at most colleges. The schedule at Full Sail runs 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, and students may have classes and labs at many different times throughout their academic careers. Students will learn the basics of working in their careers through these courses as well as having the chance to network with professionals already working in these fields. Programs of study begin each month, so that students can start working on their degrees as soon as possible.
Not all degree programs available on Full Sail’s campus are available online, but those geared towards management rather than the more creative side of things are. Students can work towards undergraduate and graduate degree programs that have produced successful graduates who have gone on to work on major productions. Current programs available online include Entertainment Business and Media Design and Technology Education.
