Joffrey BFA with NJCU

Attend Joffrey and earn your BFA

  • Earn up to two years of college credit while still enrolled in highschool!

WHAT IS THE JOFFREY BFA?

Joffrey has entered into a very exciting partnership with New Jersey City University (NJCU) and we are now able to offer our students the ability to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree through a joint program starting this year at the school.

Dancers can receive the exceptional training that the Joffrey Ballet School is known for and at the same time work towards a college degree. This is an amazing opportunity for any dancer. A college degree opens up so many doors and gives dancers an advantage not only in their dance career, but after that career is done.

What is unique about this program is that it allows our students who are still in high school to start earning credits towards their BFA while they are still in high school. Dancers in high school can earn up to two years of credit towards the program.

So for example if a dancer enters Joffrey in their junior year of high school they will have two years of the BFA program completed upon their graduation from high school and would just have 2 more years enrolled in the JBS/NJCU program to receive their degree. They would graduate with their degree two years out of high school rather than the normal 4 years.

This program is available to our international students as well. This program is only available to our dancers studying in our New York City location.

Dancers in Highschool

Joffrey has entered into a very exciting partnership with New Jersey City University (NJCU) and we are now able to offer our students the opportunity to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree through a joint program starting this year at the school.

What makes this program unique for our students is that dancers can begin earning credit for their degree while they are still in high school.

Dancers can receive credit for up to two years of courses while they are still in high school. Then the dancers continues another two years at the JBS/NJCU BFA program to graduate with their BFA.

Upon graduation they would enroll in the joint program and be able to complete their degree in just 2 years.

This allows our high school students to receive a college degree 2 years out of college instead of the normal four year period. The BFA program is open to all students, including our international visa students. This is a wonderful opportunity to receive a college degree while continuing your studies at Joffrey. For those students who will have complete more than 2 years of study while still in high school they still have the option to remain at Joffrey for 2 more years upon graduation to receive their degree.

Please reach out with any questions you have on our new partnership and we hope that you are doing well since your time at the school.
