AMDA is the only BFA-granting performing arts college with campuses located in the heart of Hollywood and Manhattan, the two creative capitals of the world. Each location offers unparalleled artistic and cultural resources: film and television studios, theatres, museums, galleries, libraries and performing arts centers.

Our campuses consist not only of the traditional buildings, theatres and classrooms but also the cities of New York and Los Angeles themselves. There is no better place to train than these two artistic capitals, where you walk by living legends on the street and have access to unparalleled events and opportunities that nourish the artist: world-class theatre, television and film studios, museums, galleries and libraries.

New York or LA? How about both!

One of the unique benefits of AMDA is the opportunity to attend classes in the world's two entertainment capitals. Begin your studies amidst the energy and culture of AMDA New York, then transfer to the glamour and sunshine of AMDA Los Angeles – or vice versa. Or complete all of your studies at a single campus. The choice is yours.
