About Distance Education
Through CDE’s convenient and flexible education formats, officers and select government employees pursue the same caliber of courses as resident students. The core areas of study are strategy and war, theater security decision making, and joint maritime operations.
Distance education students have access to online student resources and, upon graduation, become part of the same global network of alumni.
