Military tech degree designed for vets

Veterans and active-duty military personnel will be able to use their military training and academic credits to earn an associate of applied science degree in military technology at a Mississippi community college.

Copiah-Lincoln Community College is “very military friendly,”  public relations director Natalie Davis told The Daily Leader.

Co-Lin will reach out to Guard members serving in the college’s seven-county area, said Dr. Gail Baldwin, dean of career/technical and workforce education. “Some of the courses are online, so it should not matter where that service member is, even if they are overseas.”

The degree is designed to help students advance in the military, but could also help veterans qualify for civilian jobs.
