“When you attend F.I.R.S.T. Institute, you follow your passion. You realize your potential. You find the place where creativity meets career.”

What F.I.R.S.T. Is All About

F.I.R.S.T. Institute prides itself on its nontraditional approach to education. We don’t offer general education courses, and the learning environment is unlike anything you’ll find at a university. Our goal is to get you out of the classroom, and into a recording studio, film set, or editing suite (depending on what program you choose). Our courses are accelerated, meaning you’ll spend less time studying and more time applying your skills into real-world projects. It also means less time between you and your first job in the industry.

 

A creative career is a hard thing to achieve. You’ll need to be self-driven, reliable, and confident in your abilities. Even then, you’ll need to know the right people and make moves towards finding work. F.I.R.S.T. is there to help you get your foot in the door.

Our Grads Work

Graduates from our programs have built for careers for themselves – whether it’s producing and mixing music for big name artists, setting stages for acts like Kevin Hart, Taylor Swift, and Ed Sheeran, working on feature film sets, or designing logos and websites for major brands, our grads do it all.

 

What Are You Waiting For?

You have potential – all you need is direction. To turn your aspirations into reality, you need guidance from industry professionals and feedback from classmates who share your passion for what you do. That’s what you get from an education at F.I.R.S.T. Institute.
