The "I dunno" Degree

One of the biggest problems in the military is accumulating credits in things that might interest you without actually getting closer to a degree. The military attempts to put things in place to prevent this curriculum wandering, but if you don't know where you are going, you don't know if you are making progress.

About half of the Airmen I spoke with at Wright-Patterson had this issue. They had credits from the military but didn't know quite what to do with them. In order to advance they need the degree - so my advice was simple:

Use all your credits and take classes to earn a general degree with a concentration that interests you. The most critical element in the plan is that the degre must be from an accredited college or university. That way they have solid credits towards a future master's or another bachelor's if they find an area where they really want to specialize.

Lamar University has a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences that allows you to stop wandering, and get the degree with six different specializations to help your career move forward now and determine your true calling later on in life.
