Details of the SEA Curriculum Approach

NPS built this curriculum to teach US Navy Unrestricted Line Officers how the Navy builds and fights large combat systems. There are six threads interwoven in the curriculum. Each graduate completes all threads.

This curriculum reflects the cooperative best efforts of a wide range of stakeholders, each with the goal of providing line officers with a robust blend of technical and war-fighting education. This will be the best curriculum in the world for learning how to engineer, to manage, and to lead military transformation. Graduates will add value to the Navy at all levels of command through their mastery of core analytical skills and their understanding of combat systems.

The first, or refresher, quarter is taught in blocks, so the preparation material can be logically sequenced in a short amount of time. In particular, this helps students master the material in the preparation thread without being overwhelmed.
