Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 28, 2015
Tribeca Flashpoint Academy, an accredited four-year digital media arts college in downtown Chicago announced today that it will begin offering its unique model of education in a part-time evening and weekend format.
A venture with Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Enterprises, Tribeca Flashpoint Academy offers hands-on, apprenticeship-style bachelor’s and associate degrees in film, recording arts, animation + VFX, graphic design, digital marketing, and more. Until now, the school’s intensive and sought-after programs have been available in strictly full-time, weekday formats, making it difficult for some working adults to fit the programs into their lives. With the introduction of part-time evening/weekend options, students who are passionate about media arts but have significant work and personal commitments are now able to access TFA’s powerful education. “The part-time programs will leverage the exact same curricula and approach as our full-time programs—but in a format that makes sense for busy working adults,” said TFA Academic Dean Peter Hawley.
Students in TFA’s part-time evening/weekend programs will take classes on weeknights and/or Saturdays and will also have the option to take some of their courses online. They will progress through the program at a pace that best meets their individual needs, and earn their degree in as little as 2.5 years.
TFA is now accepting applications and enrolling part-time students for its May 13th start date. To apply or request more information, visit tfa.edu or call 312.332.0707.
