By expanding opportunities for online learning, The Citadel Graduate College (CGC) makes its programs more convenient, flexible, and feasible for working adult students and those currently serving in the U.S. military. The CGC offers master's degrees, graduate certificates, and undergraduate degree completion programs entirely online, which provide the same high quality content and are taught by the same expert faculty as other CGC courses. Our online courses are delivered using leading technologies, and are held to the same high standards that consistently name The Citadel the top public college in the south for institutions granting up to a master's degree.

Interdisciplinary STEM Education
As a naval officer, I am faced with increasingly complex operational, ethical and leadership challenges. It was imperative I obtain the best possible leadership education in order to successfully meet those challenges. When I began my research to find the right academic institution, I had two primary considerations: Flexibility (due to my military lifestyle) and a reputation for excellence that was instantly recognizable amongst leaders from all organizations.
There are similar online programs available at other well-known universities, but after considering The Citadel’s strong support of veterans, high academic standards, the famous alumni network and their 175-year history of producing world-class leaders, I realized that there was only one choice.
