FBINAA and University of Phoenix

Welcome, FBI National Academy Associates graduates
Did you know that as an FBINAA graduate, you have already completed the equivalent of four courses toward a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration or three courses toward a Master of Science/Administration of Justice and Security? You may also enroll in the Bachelor of Science in Organizational Security and Management program.
Criminal justice and security degree programs at University of Phoenix are designed to help students develop the knowledge and skills needed to become leaders within their organizations. Diane Scanga, FBINAA president and University of Phoenix alumna, is an outstanding example. She combined her two passions – law enforcement and education – and has risen through the ranks from cadet to police captain to serve as president of FBINAA.
Our curriculum focuses on management and is taught by faculty who average 19 years of experience in the field and have held leadership roles such as police chiefs, sheriffs, judges, wardens and security executives. Courses cover managing personnel, budgeting, operational planning, contracts and ethics, interpersonal communications, threat, cybercrime and more.
Contact an Enrollment Advisor to continue your development in the criminal justice field.
