    I leave for bootcamp on April 3rd as an E3. I am a college graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Recreation and Sports Management. I have noticed that A lot of the training that the Navy offers in my rate will give me credits toward a Bachelors Degree. However, I cant find any information on post-graduate degrees and training through schools that are paired up with the Navy. I wanted to get some on the job experience as well as earn a Masters Degree as an enlisted sailor and possibly become a Commissioned Officer. I am just looking for advice or information on enlistees getting their Master's Degree?
