The College of Maritime Operational Warfare (CMOW) at U.S. Naval War College is dedicated to improving the leadership capabilities of Navy commanders, as well as to help Navy staff members function cohesively in maritime operations centers.
CMOW offers a number of short-term professional development programs at our Newport campus and abroad. Geared toward intermediate and senior officers, our professional military education (PME) courses support combat readiness at the operational level of war. In addition to preparing military leaders, CMOW also offers special programs for international navies and civilians which focus on collaboration during global times of need.
This 12-week course provides international naval officers the skills needed to support the planning and execution of maritime operations and integrate with existing operational planning teams.
The U.S. Naval War College is here to support your educational experience, from one-on-one assistance to comfortable and connected places to learn and study.
We are proud of our faculty, which comprises active and retired senior military officers and government officials as well as highly-credentialed expert civilians.
The leadership of the U.S. Naval War College furthers the mission to educate and develop future leaders, conduct original research, and promote ethics and leadership.
