Schools Like Full Sail

Are there any other schools I should look into that have the same focuses that Full Sail has? (Full Sail focuses on Film, Game Design & Development, Recording Arts, Digital Media, Computer Animation, Entertainment Business, etc.)I know of Five Towns and Collins, but I was wondering if anybody knew any other college/university that offered some, if not all, of these programs. I'm really interested in recording arts as well as media productions. If anyone knows, please give me some 411!

Thanks =D

    UCSC now has game design & development (something like it, anyway), though it's a B.S. degree and not entirely vocational. I don't honestly know how it does in its media department, but you could check the website.

    UCF just started a program with EA games, with specializations in digital media, graphic design, game design and development.

    Full sail costs a lot of $$$ and it usually has accreditation (sp?) issues

    Gaming Expo at USC

    The November 24, 2003 Hollywood Reporter quoted Interactive Media Chair Scott Fisher about the recent digital gaming expo his division co-sponsored that was held on campus. Over 700 students attended as well as several gaming company sponsors. One of the largest game companies, Electronic Arts, plans to double the size of its Los Angeles studio to 600 during the next 18 months as well as enlarging its worldwide workforce. Scott noted that although vocational colleges offer video game design classes, "It is unique for a major research university to do so."

    Hmm .. thanks for the suggestions guys!

    I'm also interested in The Art Institutes ... I love how they have a program for culinary arts. I would love to go to a school that offers culinary arts along with the media classes... !! As for recording arts, I came across SAE, but that's about it (aside from Full Sail). I don't know what other schools offer similar programs.

    I was going to look for some in the United Kingdom as well, but I honestly don't know where to start, lol.
