Testimonial from Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director

Tbi director 01

Bethel University provides a unique opportunity to learn from top professionals and practitioners in their field to earn that degree you have been seeking to enhance your future. It may be to promote through the ranks, to enhance your competitive edge for leadership positions, or to expand your marketability presently or in the future. The quality of the education is unmatched, especially for an online format. The course work builds on the knowledge that you obtain during your time at the National Academy for either undergraduate or graduate credit. I have been an adjunct facilitator for the University since 2011 because I believe in the mission of the College of Professional Studies. I have witnessed its positive impact on graduates of the program, with many who have become peers in leadership positions in the Criminal Justice field to include Chiefs, Sheriffs, and U.S. Marshalls.
