University of Phoenix partners with FBI National Academy Associates
FBI National Academy Associates Inc. (FBINAA) and University of Phoenix have formed a new education partnership, which allows FBINAA’s nearly 18,000 members to use their FBINAA training toward a degree program at the College of Criminal Justice and Security at University of Phoenix.
Those who have completed the FBI’s prestigious National Academy program have completed the equivalent of four courses toward the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration, or three courses toward the Master of Science in Administration of Justice and Security.
“The FBINAA is dedicated to offering our members the professional development opportunities they need to continue to grow and contribute to their roles as law enforcement leaders in their communities,” says Diane Scanga, president of FBINAA. “This new relationship with University of Phoenix gives our members the ability to take advantage of the quality faculty and expertise of the University’s criminal justice programs and apply it directly to their career goals.”
Through this new education partnership, FBINAA members may be able to earn a real-world degree quicker and more cost-effectively.
“Obtaining a college degree may be critical for anyone aspiring to take on leadership roles within their criminal justice organizations,” says James Ness, PhD, dean of the College of Criminal Justice and Security for University of Phoenix. “We are proud to join with FBINAA to open these opportunities for their members so they can take that next step in their educational journey.”
