At NYFA’s Producing School in Los Angeles, aspiring producers can learn every step that goes into a successful creative production. In our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Degree in Producing, students build practical and creative skills in their chosen field throughout the program, learning to develop a pitch, make a treatment, analyze scripts, source talent, stick to a production budget, and create a schedule. The program is a great fit for students looking to pursue pathways such as line-producing, creative producing, production management, and any curatorial position within the creative industries.
In this accelerated program, students complete their BFA in eight full semesters in three years. This is achieved through an extended academic schedule, which allows students to complete three full-length semesters in each calendar year.
BFA students complete a variety of projects, such as a Finance and Budgeting Plan, Marketing and Distribution Plan, a TV Show Bible, Unscripted Television Projects, as well as Web Series Projects. Students also complete thesis projects during the final two semesters and may participate in NYFA’s Producers Pitch Fest to pitch their thesis to industry professionals. To learn more about the projects within the BFA, visit NYFA’s producing project page.
To round out their studies, BFA students are required to take Liberal Arts and Sciences classes in addition to their producing courses. These classes enhance students’ education and challenge students to strengthen their critical thinking skills, studying subject matter that closely aligns to producing.
