About New York Film Academy
Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Al Pacino, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, and Jodie Foster are among the many figures in the film industry who have sent their family members to study at the New York Film Academy. New York Film Academy is honored to be the film and acting school of choice of these other luminaries including Kevin Kline, Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, Bono (U2), directors Stephen Frears, Peter Bogdanovich, Roger Donaldson and James L. Brooks. The New York Film Academy was founded on the philosophy that “learning by doing” combined with best industry practices is more valuable than years of theoretical study for filmmakers and actors. This educational model allows students to achieve more in less time than at all other film or acting schools in the world.

The NYFA Graphic Design BFA curriculum is designed to educate, train and immerse prospective graphic designers in all aspects of the discipline and prepare graduates to move into the professional field of graphic design and related areas. As a convergent discipline, graphic design connects to many areas of visual art, design, communication and culture. Students will become articulate and fluent with visual language and gain the skills to create meaningful visual messages. The curriculum targets three knowledge areas: practice, theory and context. Students will move through a course matrix that builds skills cumulatively from introductory to advanced level in preparation for working in the profession. NYFA fosters a creative and encouraging setting in which to inspire and challenge students as they follow a rigorous curriculum and achieve multiple learning objectives. In this 20th-century global communication culture, graphic design is a growth industry and the graphic designer’s skill-set is constantly in flux.
