National Capital Region Site

Message From the Director

Thank you for your interest in Florida Institute of Technology and the National Capital Region site. For over 30 years, Florida Tech has offered master’s degrees, graduate certificates, and professional development programs in the Washington D.C National Capital area.

Our success and the success of our graduates has allowed for Florida Tech’s outstanding growth in this region. From acquisition and contract management to logistics management to business management, our site offers graduate degree programs and graduate certificate programs in a multitude of disciplines and concentrations. For greater details, please visit our complete list of programs. Because of the depth and breadth of our academic offerings, I firmly believe that one of our high-quality programs would be an excellent choice for your graduate study and/or professional development.

Our classes are offered face-to-face and online. Students attending face-to-face classes commute from the Pentagon area, the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area, including all areas of the District of Columbia; and also come from nearby Maryland. Florida Tech conducts classes at Quantico Marine Corps Base, Virginia—convenient to Fort Belvoir—and Fort Detrick, Maryland.

If you completed graduate courses at another regionally accredited college or university, we can evaluate your courses to see if you can transfer up to 12-semester hours toward a Florida Tech master’s degree, or up to 6-semester hours toward a graduate certificate. Eligible schools include the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), the Army Logistics University (ALU), Command and General Staff College (CGSC), Air University’s Squadron Officers School (SOS), and the Defense Acquisition University (DAU).

Our site also offers courses in conjunction with other local universities as part of a cooperative graduate degree program. Qualified students may take courses at any of the participating universities and transfer credit. Please contact us directly for the details on this program.

Quality matters. Florida Tech is consistently ranked as one of America’s best colleges by U.S. News & World Report and is listed as a “Best Buy in Education” by Barron's.

Please call or visit our office anytime. One of our counselors will be pleased to meet with you.
