Whether you are in the process of making the transition from the military, or have already made the transition, JWU stands ready to help you prepare for your next duty position – your civilian career.
Our 11-week online terms provide you with the time and flexibility you need to balance the challenges facing you in your new career, family obligations, and the educational demands of your degree program. In our online program, you:
- Can study on your own time, as there are no set log-in times.
- Have time to work through the course content and really own it, something that is more challenging in shorter online terms.
- Will learn from faculty who have decades of industry-related work experience that they bring with them into the classroom. Learn more about our faculty members.
- Will study industry-related coursework designed to prepare you for the civilian workforce
- Have the opportunity, if you choose to, to benefit from internships through our nationally recognized experiential learning model, helping you to gain relevant industry work experience.
At JWU we value the experience you gained through your military service. We do this by thoroughly reviewing your military training and experience reflected on your Joint Services Transcripts, Coast Guard Institute Transcripts, or your Community College of the Air Force Transcripts.
