Individual Advanced Research Projects
The Individual Advanced Research Projects (ARPs) allow qualified students to take individual research projects for elective credit. The projects are proposed in the student’s first trimester at the college with preliminary research done in the second trimester. The student’s final trimester is used to complete the research and produce a written product. These projects, supervised by faculty advisors with expertise in the areas studied, are subject to review and approval by the Advanced Research Council and the President of NWC.
For more information on ARPs, please contact the Strategic and Operational Research Department.
Regional & Specialized Study Groups
NWC’s regional studies groups have become strategic assets in the war on terrorism and in future military operations, they have also helped to support the Chief of Naval Operations maritime security cooperation initiatives. Students are invited to participate as their schedule permits during their academic year. Faculty from these regional studies groups teach regionally-oriented electives and research issues of crucial importance to the numbered Fleets, Combatant Commanders, and other government agencies.
