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.
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 three years of credit towards the program.
To put this into perspective a high school student entering the program in their sophomore year would be able to earn 3 years worth of dance credits by the time they finish high school. They would enter the NJCU/Joffrey BFA program with 3 years of dance credits. They would be able to complete their degree at NJCU with one more year of dance credits and 36 academic credits. Student’s also have the ability to transfer in AP credits to reduce the academic courses required.
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.
