Naval Command College (MASL: P171001)

Last updated: 22 Jun 2021

Positions of higher responsibility require an education that broadens an officer’s background from strictly his/her service and military knowledge to joint combined operations, economic and political considerations, and the political decision making process.
 
The Naval Command College at the U.S. Naval War College is a resident graduate level international program designed for senior naval officers. The mission of the Naval Command College is to enable specially selected senior international naval officers to develop skills in national security decision making, build strategy and policy analytical frameworks, and gain expertise in joint war-fighting doctrine preparing them for higher command responsibilities. An increase in cooperation among navies of the world in order to foster peaceful use of the seas, diffuse crises, and when necessary, work together to fight and win our nation's wars is the objective. To enhance this mission, it is equally important that senior international naval officers achieve a balanced understanding of the United States’ society and the inner strengths of America. An integrated Field Studies Program includes informational visits to business and financial organizations, industrial complexes, education institutions, governmental agencies as well as military facilities throughout the United States.
 
The Naval Command College course is conducted once annually and is open to Navy officers, grades 0-5 and 0-6 (Commanders and Captains). This program is segregated from its U.S. counterpart; however, the academic programs are almost identical insofar as disclosure restrictions allow. Students pursue the prescribed studies in Policy and Strategy, National Security Decision Making, and Joint Military Operations, follow the same basic schedule and are integrated into the seminars and lectures of their U.S. counterparts. On an optional basis they may participate in the Electives Program. Their studies differ only in the addition of a preliminary orientation period and series of Field Studies Program (FSP) trips designed to familiarize them with U.S. Navy organization, methods, and doctrines, as well as the government, economy, culture and geography of the United States.
