More than 4,400 men and women representing every state in the U.S. and several foreign countries make up the student body, known as the Brigade of Midshipmen. Midshipmen learn from an academic faculty, comprised of both military and civilian professors and participate in intercollegiate varsity sports and extracurricular activities. They also study subjects to include small arms, drill, seamanship and navigation, tactics, naval engineering and weapons, leadership, ethics and military law. Upon graduation, midshipmen earn a tax-payer funded Bachelor of Science degree in a choice of 25 different academic majors and go on to serve at least five years of exciting and rewarding service as commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy or the U.S. Marine Corps.
