Is New York Film Academy a College?


Many times people ask me “is New York Film Academy a college?”. For the sake of time, the answer is yes. But if you have the time, you may be interested to learn a little more about what we offer.

When we first opened our doors in 1992 our film school was referred to as a “filmmakers boot camp” because of our intensive and hands-on filmmaking training offered no college credit at that time. Today, we continue the same intensive and hands-on training while offering college credit and degree programs as well.

Our campuses in Los Angeles and New York City are accredited by the National Association of Art and Design which allows us to offer college credited courses for a all of our adult programs. For those of you who are interested in earning a college degree in fine arts the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles offers a Associates, Bachelors and Masters degree programs. Students have the option of studying all two or four years in Los Angeles or spend one year in New York City then transfer to Los Angeles to complete their degree. Many students find studying in New York City then transferring to Los Angeles gives them a well rounded “college”experience.

While we still consider ourselves a technical school you can refer to us as a college if you would like. But don’t confuse New York Film Academy with any other college. We offer the best of both worlds. Earn your degree while you perfect your craft without the long lectures and text book assignments you would expect from a college.
