Learning at Full Sail University has always centered around interaction and the exchange of ideas. Our online curriculum fully embraces this philosophy.
If you are well acquainted with Oklahoma, you may already know that all roads truly seem to lead to Tulsa. Centrally located in the state’s “Green Country”, Tulsa is considered the epicenter of arts and culture in Oklahoma, the birthplace of the mother road (Route 66), the end of the infamous “Trail of Tears”, and the metaphorical buckle of the Bible Belt. Given this vast expanse of historical identities, it’s no wonder that present day Tulsa serves as a dynamic blend of past and present, where the people and streets are as vibrant as the rolling green hills that surround this Heartland metropolis. For students considering a study of the arts in Tulsa, the city provides endless opportunities. From the art deco architecture that abounds throughout the city, to the professional opera and ballet companies, the two internationally recognized museums, and the countless art organizations and galleries, Tulsa is a veritable playground for the Okie artist or art lover. Even the city’s splendid River Parks line their trails with various works of art, providing further evidence of the value Tulsans place on the arts. Areas of note include the two indirectly aforementioned museums, The Philbrook Museum of Art and the Gilcrease Museum, as well as the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art, the Greenwood Cultural Center, and the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. In addition to the museums, the city’s Brady Village Arts District is home to numerous galleries and art spaces, which includes the Tulsa Artist Coalition Alternative Gallery (owned and operated by local artists) and the Tulsa Gathering Place. Other galleries of note include the Art Market, the M.A. Doran Gallery, Chelsea Gallery Ltd., ArtSource, and Art Gallery. Students attending either the University of Tulsa or Oral Roberts University enjoy countless opportunities to enjoy all that the city has to offer, including internships, employment, and daily enjoyment.
