About this Program
The Holloway Group at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) is a part-time student elective program that students take for three trimesters. Working closely with NWC faculty, the joint U.S. students conduct data collection, wargaming, research, and analysis on specific scenario-based problems. Scenarios involve a variety of access denial challenges and joint maritime conflict, all enabled by sophisticated military technology. The group maintains direct contact with the full range of relevant intelligence and operational commands to ensure project currency and to provide feedback to these commands.
Research and Study
Students in this program will examine Russian and U.S. weapons systems, doctrines, and warfighting capabilities in all domains. They will focus on adversary military capabilities, maritime and naval doctrine, and strategy.
This 10-month specialized program of study is completed in conjunction with either the NWC U.S. resident College of Naval Warfare senior level or the College of Naval Command and Staff intermediate-level core curriculum.
This program is conducted during the elective time slot in all trimesters. During the academic year, students are required to complete well-researched papers that inform operational planning and joint force organization at the theater level.
U.S. Navy students who complete this specialized program of study are awarded an Additional Qualification Designation (AQD 278) for the Holloway Group.
Students who apply are chosen after meeting with Holloway faculty. This program is selective and competitive; applicants are selected based on proven performance, desire, and the skillsets required by the Holloway program.
