About the Academic Program

To prepare midshipmen as Naval officers, the Naval Academy’s curriculum blends professional subjects with required and elective courses. Our curriculum has three basic elements:

  • Core requirements in engineering, natural sciences, the humanities and social sciences, to ensure that graduates are able to think critically,
  • Core academic courses and practical training to teach the leadership and professional skills required of Navy and Marine Corps officers
  • An academic major that permits a midshipman to explore a discipline in some depth and prepare for graduate level work.
