Our electives program at U.S. Naval War College (NWC) provides the opportunity for students to explore subjects not in the core curriculum, enhance your regional expertise, or examine core subjects in greater detail. U.S. officers are required to take electives while pursuing their Master of Arts degree.
The Electives Program provides the opportunity to develop and pursue a variety of graduate-level intellectual challenges. Each academic year the Electives Program offers approximately 120 courses designed and taught by NWC professors and adjunct professors. An extensive Electives Program expands the colleges educational offerings by providing opportunities to explore subjects not included in the core curriculum or investigate in greater detail specific elements of that curriculum.
