New York Film Academy

St. John’s University Provost, Dr. Julia A. Upton, RSM, and New York Film Academy (NYFA) President and Founder, Jerry Sherlock, met in Manhattan on October 10 to sign an Articulation Agreement to partner in a new academic initiative for students from both institutions.

St. John’s College of Professional Studies will accept qualified transfer students who have taken one year of filmmaking from NYFA who, in turn, can matriculate into the University’s Bachelor of Science degree in Television and Film Studies program effective immediately.

“We are delighted to be partnering with the New York Film Academy and, it is fitting that we sign this agreement in Tribeca, which is the independent film capital of the world, and where the academy and quality filmmaking have received widespread acclaim,” said Dr. Frank Brady, Chair of the Department of Mass Communications at St. John’s University.

Sherlock is equally thrilled to have St. John’s as an educational arm for NYFA and is committed to the University’s curriculum in the area of film studies. He discussed plans for future scholarship opportunities and a guest lecture series with NYFA professionals at St. John’s Manhattan Campus (101 Astor Place).
