Naval War College at the Naval Postgraduate School

Naval War College Monterey is a satellite office of the United States Naval War College, College of Distance Education (CDE) located on campus at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. In partnership with NPS, we provide qualified officers and select DoD civilians attending NPS with the opportunity to earn a Naval War College diploma and JPME Phase I credit.

Program Overview

The NWC program is designed to educate professional naval officers in areas that will enhance their performance in command and in decision making positions on major staffs.  NWC Command & Staff program graduates are eligible for “joint coded” billets and those officers can negotiate class dates for the Joint Forces Staff College (JPME phase II) with their detailers or await assignment to a senior level service school.

As part of the agreement between the Naval War College (NWC) and NPS we have structured the program at NPS so that students enrolled in a master's degree program are able to earn a NWC, College of Distance Education Command and Staff diploma in four quarters.  The agreement stipulated a level of effort equating four separate 4-credit hour courses which can be achieved by enrolling in one course per quarter.  Students who successfully complete both programs would leave NPS with their Masters Degree, subspecialty code, NWC diploma and JPME Phase I credit.
