Wayland Baptist University – Military Education Online

Military students are a crucial part of the Wayland family. You will find men and women from every branch of the U.S. armed services taking courses at Wayland. Courses are offered at military bases located close to several of our external campuses, from Alaska to New Mexico.

Military Education Online Testimonial

Hear from one of our many successful online military education students:

“Wayland Baptist University has enabled me to accomplish one of my career and life goals of attaining a master’s degree, the first in my family to do so.”
“Since I am in the Navy, I travel quite a bit. It is difficult finding a quality school that has course schedules and programs that are conducive to my dynamically changing schedule. The short terms in-class, supplemented by a couple online classes and a couple of hybrid classes, enabled me to complete my degree with ensuring that I received quality face-to-face instruction and mentoring.”

“I now believe that I am much better prepared to transition into the civilian life. I have completed 21 years of naval service and am now eligible to retire and transition to a new career in the business world.”

-Charles Bering, HI grad, MAM
