About the Core Curriculum
This understanding is achieved through the combined efforts of four core courses: Joint Maritime Operations, Theater Security Decision Making, and Strategy and Warfare.
Joint Maritime Operations Curriculum
The Joint Maritime Operations (JMO) curriculum focuses on preparing future military and civilian leaders for high-level policy, command, and staff positions requiring joint planning expertise and joint warfighting skills. The curriculum emphasizes the theory and practice of operational art in terms of maritime and joint forces. Students will learn to apply these skills in a seminar environment to employ joint forces and achieve a broad array of objectives.More on JMO Curriculum
