University of the Southwest Becomes FBI National Academy Associate Academic Alliance Partner

(Hobbs, NM Oct 16, 2013)—University of the Southwest has recently developed an academic alliance partnership with FBI National Academy.  The FBINAA's Academic Alliances were created as formal program designed to offer NAA members the opportunity to further their formal education in a manner that was affordable, convenient, and safe.  This program is called the Academic Alliance program.  All the schools that are a part of this Program are regionally accredited universities offering degree programs that would interest and benefit law enforcement executives. 

University of the Southwest supports the needs of the law enforcement community and currently offers two-degree programs that allow flexibility of interested law enforcement personnel.  For individuals needing to complete their bachelor’s degree, USW offers a 100% online program in Criminal Justice.  This program evaluates training, academy and military experience and applies it towards credit for the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Degree. 

For professionals looking to obtain a masters level degree, USW offers a 100% online Masters of Business Administration with several areas of concentration including a specialization in Law Enforcement and Corrections. This program is designed to help law enforcement and correctional officers budget finances, manage officers, and become strong, well-rounded leaders.

Both online programs allow for the working officer to serve his/her community while pursuing a degree.  The online program is accessible 24/7 and students can study on their own time.  The tuition is all inclusive of e-textbooks and a chromebook computer and no hidden fees.  USW’s Criminal Justice Program Director, Duane Clark, commented, “We recently embarked on a mission to offer a CJ program for students that do not have the time to attend a traditional University. Through our on-line classes you can keep your job and complete your degree. Those of us that have served our communities know how hard it can be. Our classes are flexible and available when you are.”

Founded in 1962, University of the Southwest (USW) is a private, four-year Christian university located in Hobbs, New Mexico. Regionally accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the university offers undergraduate and graduate degrees both on-campus and online, and was recently ranked by U.S. News and World Report for 'Top Online Education Programs' and 'Top Online Business Programs.'
