The AFA Degree Program in Game Design allows students to focus exclusively on their artistic and professional development. Unlike a standard undergraduate program the student this allows the student to focus on the core of the art they wish to pursue immediately and without the usual array of distribution requirements. The New York Film Academy (NYFA) Associates of Fine Arts (AFA) in Game Writing & Design is a four semester conservatory-based, full-time study graduate program. The curriculum is designed to immerse gifted and energetic prospective Game Writers and Designers in all aspects of the discipline. The New York Film Academy Associates of Fine Arts in Game Writing & Design provides a creative setting in which to challenge, inspire, and perfect the talents of its student body.

The strength of the NYFA AFA in Game Writing & Design Degree Program is in its combination of storytelling studies, game design theory, game arts education, game programming education, and the hands-on direct application of each. Based on a high concentration of intense game narrative and game design workshops designed to challenge the individual student beyond his or her status quo and into a new realm, the program is further enhanced by concentrating on the commercial realities of the medium, real world education through internships, externships, and NYFA's collaboration with industry-leading game development companies on a game designed and deployed by a team of students who work hand-in-hand with working professionals in the game industry.
