A college education is a solid investment in your future.

But the power of a degree doesn't stop with your paycheck. UMUC will help prepare you for a lifetime of success in the workplace.

A Flexible Education for a Portable Career

We know going back to school can feel improbable for military spouses. You may be moving to a new duty station, caring for children, dealing with a tight budget, or working around your spouse's training schedule. But to find a good job, it pays to invest in yourself. 

We can help. UMUC began serving military families in 1947, and more than 50,000 military servicemembers, veterans, and military family members attend UMUC today. Overcoming moves and deployment is not easy, but a UMUC education can help you pursue a portable career that fits your military lifestyle.

Whether you're working from home, creating your own business, or filling a position that's in demand around the world, you can put your knowledge, skills, and talent to work anywhere your military life takes you. Popular portable careers include those in education, healthcare, business, and technology.

Browse degrees by career, and contact our admissions counselors today. We'll help assess your interests and create an education plan that fits your life.
