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.
