AMDA offers two-year Conservatory programs on our New York campus and four-year BFA degrees in Los Angeles, providing students state-of-the-art resources and one-on-one attention with still-working professionals.
Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST) since 1984, AMDA is a flourishing, internationally-recognized performing arts institution that has served the New York community for over 50 years. AMDA is the only performing arts college offering a variety of Bachelor of Fine Arts Degrees and Professional Conservatory Certificates in Acting, Dance Theatre and Music Theatre. Students who graduate from AMDA New York have the option to seamlessly continue their education on our Los Angeles campus to receive their Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
With our faculty of working Broadway actors, choreographers, casting agents, screenwriters and voice actors, AMDA thus serves as both school and stage, offering professional and academic training where students have the opportunity to define their own personal aspirations and distinct artistic voices.
