Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy

Founded in 2007 and accredited by ACICS in 2011, Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy in the heart of downtown Chicago provides a two-year, career-focused alternative to traditional four-year media arts colleges.

Our five disciplines, including Film + Broadcast, Recording Arts, Animation + Visual Effects, Game + Interactive Media, and Design + Visual Communication are designed to erase the boundaries between the classroom and the real world. Through a combination of hands-on learning, expert instruction, and an emphasis on collaboration and professionalism, we develop well-rounded, highly skilled professionals who are ready to hit the ground running after graduation.

In addition to discipline-specific coursework, several key educational areas support each program’s curriculum:

General education courses allow students to build their professional skills on a solid foundation of written and oral communication skills, math, and humanities.

TFA Professional Standards provide the framework for evaluating students' professional development and ensure their preparedness for career success.

Student Services, including academic advising, tutoring, and social service assistance, ensure that every student has a reliable network of support.

Career Services prepares students for employment with career classes, resume and interview coaching, and networking events to assist students through the process of transitioning from school to employment.

At the end of two years, students walk away with more than an Associate’s degree; our immersive programs prepare graduates for the workforce with a resume full of real-world projects, a highlight reel of quality work, and the professional skills to enter the digital entertainment industry and build a career within it.
