Study Graphic Design at Full Sail University

Posted on September 20th, 2012 by Jenny Frankel

For the perfect mix of graphic design and a warm, sunny climate consider studying graphic design at Full Sail University. Earning national recognition for its excellence in new media and project-based learning, Full Sail provides an alternative approach to a first class education. Plus, with campus just minutes from Orlando, Florida, its location is just another great reason to earn your degree in graphic design.

STUDY ON CAMPUS OR ONLINE
Study graphic design at Full Sail University and earn an Associate of Science or a Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Design. The associate degree takes 13 months and is offered on campus while the bachelor’s degree takes 32 months and is available online. Both cover the essentials of art history to corporate branding to design aesthetics, and both follow Full Sail University’s mantra of project-based learning.

PROJECT-BASED LEARNING
It’s essentially a hands-on approach to ensure that, while students are learning, they are also building their portfolios and gaining experience. Project-based learning is the best reason to study graphic design at Full Sail University. And it’s the reason they can offer associate and bachelor’s degrees in shorter spans of time. Students aren’t learning any less, but they are building their portfolios more and more.

It all culminates with a Portfolio Development course, in which students polish their existing art and design projects to strengthen their portfolios for the working world. There’s also a Personal Identity Project giving students the ability to market their own brand. Students make their own logos, marketing material, and websites that express who they are as graphic designers and better market themselves for potential employers. Full Sail ensures that while students are getting their degree in graphic design, they are simultaneously making themselves stand out from other job applicants with such a well-defined and personalized portfolio right out of school.

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES
Studying graphic design at Full Sail University is a cinch. They offer rolling admissions with students starting every month.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Full Sail is also committed to its international students –with students from 49 countries around the world – and offers admissions representatives to lead you through the process. For international students unsure of their level of English, Full Sail also offers a six-month English as a Second Language Certificate Program to get your life at Full Sail started on the right path (and, for the time being, they also offer their ESL students a free iPad).

Sound appealing? Take a test drive to see if Full Sail University is the school for you!
