Cleary University and the Detroit Fire Department has established an education alliance created for working fire professionals. Custom degree completion pathways are designed to maximize your work and life experience. These programs provide fire professionals at every stage of their career an opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree with a concentration in Diversity, Leadership and Public Safety.
Convenience: Classes meet 1 night per week in 6-week sessions on-site at Detroit Public Safety Headquarters or Cleary University Detroit Education Center.
Affordability: In alignment with your tuition benefits program, your maximum annual out of pocket cost is only $10,000 (including all technology fees and course materials).
Custom Design: Since no two fire professionals are at the same place in their education, Cleary has crafted three custom tracks to help employees earn degrees:
Credits: We understand that learning takes place beyond the classroom. Cleary has established a Prior Learning Assessment Process to save you time and money toward your degree.
Priority Enrollment & Registration: Detroit Fire Department students receive concierge support to ensure a hassle-free admissions and enrollment process.
Team-Oriented: With cohort-based pathways, Detroit Fire Department employees study and work together during programs of study.
