U.S. Naval Community College and Tidewater Community College

Associate of Applied Science in Technical Studies

The Associate of Applied Science in Technical Studies program is designed for Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen who are interested in becoming better enlisted leaders in logistics. This program helps you accomplish this by developing an understanding of logistics and supply chain management, including purchasing and inbound logistics; handling; warehousing; inventory and financial controls; and transportation.

Through the USNCC and TCC partnership the degree pathway also includes a Certificate in Naval Studies taught by the USNCC’s faculty and a Career Studies Certificate in Logistics taught by the faculty at TCC. The five-course Naval Studies Certificate provides a naval-relevant foundation to your lifelong educational journey.

Additionally, the Technical Studies degree comes with a Career Studies Certificate in Logistics, which is a seven-course program that builds skills in management, planning, organizing, leading, and controlling to more efficiently plan, implement, and control the flow and storage of goods, services, and information from origin to consumption through both theoretical and practical approaches to supply chain processes, purchasing, inventory, and warehouse management.

Finally, you will complete the intellectual skills requirements that round out your critical thinking and communication skills and ensure your degree is transferable.
