MFA Film Program at New York Film Academy (NYFA) is an accelerated two-year program made possible by an extended academic year. Candidates will complete three full-length semesters in each calendar year. The Film Program, along with other MFA degree programs, are offered at our Los Angeles and South Beach Campuses.
Bachelor's in film is for highly motivated students who would like to enter an intensive, hands-on course of study. The Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree Program in Filmmaking employs a total immersion approach to the subject, where students develop a powerful arsenal of skills in directing, screenwriting, cinematography, editing, and producing. Students work in all formats from 16mm and HD to 35mm and RED Dragon as they write, direct, shoot, and edit their own films. A strong grounding in the liberal arts and sciences serves to inform students' work and give them a well-rounded undergraduate education.
The strength of the NYFA Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies Degree is in its combination of media theory and media practice. Students will develop and present essays and academic studies on media, as well as creating professional-caliber emerging media pitch presentations, business plans, scripts, budgets, and ultimately completed content. The program is further enhanced through internships and NYFA’s collaboration with industry-leading emerging media companies. Students will be prepared to either work hand-in-hand with professionals in the traditional and emerging media industries or advance to the next, appropriate level of graduate study.
