Military Technology and Leadership Degree

Our Military Technology and Leadership degree was designed with the needs of career service members who need an associate degree for promotion. Up to 70 credits from the Joint Services Transcript can be used to meet this degree’s requirements. This allows for students to maximize the credit earned for learning in the military to earn an associate degree for points towards a promotion board. 

An advisory board of current and former service members mapped out the remaining courses required to provide the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to be a leader in today’s armed forces. This degree was created for career advancement in the military and has very limited transferability into bachelor degree programs.

This degree can be completed 100% online.
