With contributors in the fields of communication, psychology, English, law, and others, Navigating Life with a Graduate Degree as a Military Spouse: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Challenges, Lessons Learned, and Thriving amidst Uncertainty utilizes interdisciplinary theories, methods, and approaches to study the educational and career experiences of military spouses with advanced degrees.
The contributors to this volume analyze the challenges, struggles, and positive aspects of being a military spouse with an advanced degree in both academic and professional contexts. The chapters cover chronological approaches to academic and military identities; academic, professional, and military challenges; and strategies for enhancing academic, military, and professional life. This book expands and focuses on the unique challenges military spouses encounter while in graduate school and while transitioning out of graduate programs into academic and professional contexts, and provides a new resource for military and academic researchers, scholars, and practitioners.

In The Press
Military Spouses with Graduate Degrees: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Thriving Amidst Uncertainty is an excellent resource for anyone conducting research about military families, but certainly for those who are in the military and the people who are helping them. The collection reflects a range of topics and approaches, the contributors come from several disciplines, and they each make an important contribution to understanding the complexities of military life. I highly recommend the entire book.
