Hands-On Degrees, Programs, and Workshops
In film, television, and new media, the Screenwriter establishes the basic building blocks of the visual story. At NYFA’s Screenwriting School, students can learn these fundamental skills, working on multiple projects at a time and balancing an intensive workload.
Students learn to transform their ideas into structured scripts throughout the programs, exploring different media, genres, and styles. Through this hands-on approach, students gain extensive experience in screenwriting while building an impressive body of work. Students can choose from a variety of in-person and online programs at our campuses in New York and Los Angeles, as well as at NYFA Australia, that range from short-term workshops to full-fledged degree programs.
As the original disruptors of the Hollywood gate-keeping system, NYFA strives to make education in screenwriting and film accessible to the most diverse, international, and broadest spectrum of students. At our Screenwriting School, we foster an environment that is creatively challenging, respectful, and actively supportive of each unique student and a collectively diverse student body.
