Our three-year Bachelor's is for highly motivated students who would like to enter an intensive hands-on professional course of study. By completing the Bachelor's degree in three-years students:
  • Save one year of expenses
  • Enter the field of their choice a year early
The Academy makes this accelerated schedule possible by creating an extended academic year allowing students to complete three full-length semesters in each calendar year. Students may also choose to complete the program in a traditional four-year time frame.

New York Film Academy BFA degree programs are offered only at our Los Angeles Campus.

The NYFA Bachelor of Fine Arts is designed for undergraduate students who wish to integrate intensive professional training with a comprehensive liberal arts education. The BFA degrees in Filmmaking, Acting, Screenwriting, Animation, or Game Design, are a rigorous mixture of hands-on experiential work, employing state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, and a rich academic curriculum. NYFA graduates are fully prepared for their chosen career path and find their unique education to be a bona fide steppingstone to real world engagement in the performing and entertainment arts and allied professions.

Located at Universal Studios, Los Angeles, NYFA's BFA programs are literally at the center of the American entertainment industry. Beyond the opportunity to interact in their classroom and studio training with mentors who are working professionals and educators, NYFA students are exposed to a cultural environment that far exceeds those offered at the art programs at most liberal arts colleges and universities.

Bi-Coastal Experience

New York Film Academy degree programs are offered at our Los Angeles campus. Qualified students have the option of completing course work at the New York Film Academy in New York City in a one-year non-degree program and requesting that their course work be accepted for advanced standing in the bachelor's degree program at the Los Angeles campus. In order to do so, students must apply and be accepted to the degree program in Los Angeles. These students will take a modified course of study that will deliver the liberal arts and sciences courses during their studies in the Los Angeles campus exclusively with an adjustment to the progression of the classes in the major. This gives students the unique opportunity to learn their craft in both New York City, the heart of the independent film industry and international proving ground for actors, and in Los Angeles, amidst the great film studios in the worldwide entertainment capital.
