Prescott Valley, AZ (PRWEB) October 15, 2007
In response to increasing public safety personnel demand, Northcentral University (http://www.NCU.edu), an innovator in 100% online higher education, today announced the formation of its new College of Law Enforcement and Security.
"Professionals in law enforcement, security and public safety have seen their careers change drastically in response to world events. As a result of this change, Northcentral University founded the College of Law Enforcement and Security, focusing on the degree programs professionals need to excel in their jobs and rise to positions of leadership," commented Dr. Claudia Santin, Northcentral University President.
Drawing on degree programs and faculty from each of NCU's three schools, the online higher education college focuses on degree specializations of particular interest to law enforcement and security personnel such as Criminal Justice, Homeland Security, Public Administration and Computer and Information Security. NCU is also an educational partner of the FBI National Academy and the Fraternal Order of Police.
The newly formed College of Law Enforcement and Security offers public safety professionals highly affordable degree programs, starting at $250 a credit hour for undergraduate and $285 a credit for master's and doctoral students. "These tuitions are often 30 to 50 percent lower than comparable programs at other institutions," Santin added.
NCU offers online higher education courses year round, with a new course beginning the first of each month. All instruction is provided over the Internet using the University's convenient Learner Web site and helpful resources such as the NCU Library and Writing Center. Students work on assignments individually with faculty mentors who are experts in the subject matter and are trained in online teaching and learning.
