The Institutional Setting: The College is first and foremost a federally-funded graduate level Professional Military Education and research institution serving the U.S. Navy, the Department of Defense, and the Nation. Since its founding in 1884 by Rear Admiral Stephen B. Luce, the Naval War College has been “?a place of original research on all questions relating to war and to statesmanship connected with war, or the prevention of war.” Annually the College conducts six resident professional military education programs to over 500 students. The student body consists of members of all the military services, civilians from governmental agencies, and officers from many partner nations. The College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education to award a Master of Arts Degree in National Security & Strategic Studies or Defense & Strategic Studies, and by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to award Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) Phase I and Phase II credit. The College of Distance Education conducts seven nonresident programs currently reaching 350,000 students, providing JPME I, Introductory, Basic, and Primary PME to sailors stationed around the globe. The College’s Center for Naval Warfare Studies (CNWS) serves as the research arm of the College, providing maritime-focused war gaming and strategic research with the goal of assisting the Navy’s leadership in defining the future Navy. Since 1956 the College has maintained a vigorous international program through the Naval Command and Naval Staff Colleges. With over 55 countries represented each year, a majority of our international graduates go on to achieve the rank of admiral or general in their Service and many become chiefs of their Navy. The College of Maritime Operational Warfare (CMOW) provides intermediate- and senior-level leadership development and combat readiness programs. Its curriculum centers on the ever-evolving ethical, operational, and tactical challenges facing today’s naval officers. CMOW assists the Navy in maintaining Fleet operational readiness. The College of Leadership and Ethics (CLE) is responsible for leader development and associated strategies for U.S. Navy flag officers delivering courses and tailored activities. CLE also supports 17 Navy communities in the development and execution of their respective leader development strategies through the Navy’s Leader Development Continuum. As part of the core curriculum, resident students will take the Leadership in the Profession of Arms (LPA) course. The primary objective of the LPA course is to provide a developmental experience through a self-learning journey that combines education rigor and professional relevance. We are actively seeking candidates with diverse academic, demographic, and professional backgrounds. More information on the college can be found at
