Media Arts merges artistic expression with current and evolving technology, equipping aspiring visual artists to express themselves through a range of mediums. At NYFA, students can choose from Media Arts disciplines, including Photography, 3D Animation & Visual Effects, Broadcast Journalism, Game Design, and Virtual Reality, where they learn the fundamental principles of narrative storytelling and how to apply them through a project-based, hands-on approach. 

Throughout our programs, students create their own content, build fundamental knowledge in their chosen discipline, and get the practical training necessary to tell compelling stories in innovative and unexpected ways.
