SDSU offers special grad program for vets; active duty military

San Diego State University announced Monday it is launching a first-of-its-kind online professional graduate program tailored to prepare veterans and active-duty military personnel for high-paying, high-demand jobs in science and technology.

The program is a partnership with military education experts from Southern California and industry leaders in the region.

“Our military and veterans have the background and skills that make them ideal candidates for these jobs, but lack the opportunity for professional training that connects them directly with employers and focuses on the skills needed in high growth science and technology fields,” said Stanley Maloy, dean of SDSU’s College of Sciences.

“These are rigorous, high-quality academic programs that will provide great opportunities in areas of the economy that draw on the expertise these men and women who have served our country typically develop through their jobs in the nation’s technically advanced military service,” Maloy said.

The professional science master’s and certificate programs will draw on candidates’ technical expertise and will be offered online, allowing flexibility for veterans and active-duty military stationed around the world to participate.

“This program is unique because it provides great opportunities for those who’ve already completed their undergraduate work and who have the background and expertise to help meet the region’s ongoing need for professionals skilled in science and technology,” said Joe Shapiro, dean of SDSU’s College of Extended Studies, through which the courses will be offered.
