School Review: Henley-Putnam University
Henley-Putnam University, formerly known as the California University of Protection and Intelligence Management, is an online school that specializes in awarding degrees in the fields of protection, intelligence management, and counter-terrorism. The name change occurred in 2007 when officials decided that they needed a name that better reflected their bachelor's and master's degree offerings. They chose Henley-Putnam after the historical figures Colonel David Henley and General Israel Putnam.
Instructors at Henley-Putnam University are all experienced in their field with more than 80% holding masters or doctoral degrees. Additionally, many faculty members received their degrees from Ivy League universities, including the University of California at Berkeley, Yale University, Cambridge University, Stanford University, and Georgetown University. Henley-Putnam does not provide financial aid, though they do offer monthly payment plans, accept Department of Veterans' Affairs benefits, and allow students to obtain 3rd party loans.

Their Bachelor's Degrees include a BS in Management of Personal Protection, a BS in Intelligence Management, and a BS in Terrorism and Counterterrorism Studies, and their Master's Degrees include an MS in Management of Personal Protection, an MS in Intelligence Management, and an MS in Terrorism and Counterterrorism Studies.
