The two courses that Army students attend at the Naval War College are the College of Naval Command and Staff (CNCS) and The College of Naval Warfare (CNW). CNCS is the Naval version of Command and General Staff College (CGCS) attended by Majors (O4) as an alternative to Intermediate Level Education (ILE) at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. CNW is attended by Army Lieutenant Colonels (O5) and Colonels (O6) in lieu of the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks. Both CNCS and CNW graduates will receive a Master of Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies
