Which area of study is right for you?
If you're interested in filmmaking, you know you have a lot of options for how to tell your story and how to make your art. At Full Sail University, our areas of study in film embrace those possibilities with a variety of options designed for your specific goals.

But first, you have to determine which film degree is right for you.
Film – Campus
The art of filmmaking is a collaborative endeavor. To be successful, it's important to understand how all the different teams work together to support each other. At Full Sail, studying film at the undergraduate level will give you a feel for a variety of roles on a film crew, including writing, directing, editing, makeup, and more.
The on-campus courses also allow you to gain hands-on experience with professional equipment and environments that replicate the real deal. That includes sound stages, a Hollywood-style backlot, a Dolby-approved dubbing stage, and a futuristic virtual production studio.
You'll apply your skills across a variety of projects, including documentaries, short films, music videos, commercials, and television. This is a great option if you're interested in learning on campus and being a part of a film crew.
Digital Cinematography – Online
Digital cinematography is offered online. In this area of study, you'll receive a professional gear package with the tools and software you need for hands-on learning.
This is a good choice for those looking to become independent filmmakers and jacks-of-all-trades. The broad skillsets covered include independent newsgathering, documentary filmmaking, commercial production, and more.
You'll learn professional studio workflows for script development, production planning, on-location filming, and post-production. Courses also cover content distribution so you can learn how to best share your art with your audience.
