Our three-year Bachelor of Fine Arts degree 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 NYFA Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree is designed for undergraduate students who wish to integrate intensive professional training with a comprehensive liberal arts education. The Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Filmmaking, Acting, Screenwriting, Producing, Photography, Animation, Game Design, and Graphic 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 stepping stone to real world engagement in the performing and entertainment arts and allied professions.

NYFA offers BFA programs in three locations: New York City, Los Angeles, and South Beach.

Located next to Warner Bros. Studios, our Los Angeles campus is 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 in the art programs at most liberal arts colleges and universities.

The New York City facilities are located in Battery Park, directly across from the Statue of Liberty and minutes away from the trendy TriBeCa neighborhood. The location places students directly in the center of New York’s vibrant film and television industry, with easy access to Broadway and the city’s unparallelled cultural institutions.

In addition, NYFA also offers Bachelor of Fine Arts degree programs in Filmmaking and Acting at our South Beach location in Miami, Florida. The South Beach neighborhood in Miami is a vibrant and diverse area in a city that is full of culture. Students are able to take advantage of the incredible Miami weather and landscape by scouting locations throughout the city in which to film and shoot original projects.

Bi-Coastal Experience

New York Film Academy degree programs are offered at all three US campuses. Qualified students have the option to transfer campuses after their first year, giving them the unique opportunity to learn their craft in multiple cities. Students can choose from New York City, the heart of the independent film industry and international proving ground for actors; Los Angeles, home of the great studios in the worldwide entertainment capital; and South Beach, the hub of Miami's vibrant and diverse film industry. Please note that not all programs are offered in all locations.
