Fleet seminars deliver our graduate-level coursework in three core areas:
- Theater Security Decision Making - 7 credits
- Strategy & War - 7 credits
- Joint Maritime Operations - 7 credits
Students typically take one course per academic year, and can complete the entire program in about three years.
Fleet Seminar courses run from September through May. Classes, usually limited to about 18 students, meet for three hours in the evening 34 times during the year. Additionally, students can expect to spend six to 12 hours outside of the classroom on writing assignments.
Fleet Seminars are cost-free to students, and NWC also loans all required course materials to participating students.
Fleet Seminar students who have completed the program are invited to Newport, Rhode Island, for graduation, as well as for the Current Strategy Forum, held during commencement week.
