What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • The 338-acre campus, affectionately known as “The Yard,” is located in Annapolis, Md., where the Severn River meets the Chesapeake Bay. As a National Historic Site, it attracts more than a million visitors annually. The crypt of Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones rests beneath the Academy Chapel. Monuments throughout the tree-shaded campus honor the bravery of military men and women, and buildings and walkways feature the names of famous graduates. All students reside in campus housing.

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
1 Answer
  • Classes utilize technology for learning and communication purposes, but USNA does not offer online or distance-education programs. And while the institution itself does not award graduate degrees, select students secure scholarships to further their studies elsewhere. (The Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, is a popular choice.) Some continue immediately after graduation, while others return to school following their service obligation. Highly qualified students even may be able to start during their senior year at USNA.

What are the athletic highlights?
1 Answer
  • Any competitions against the United States Military Academy at West Point always generate campus-wide interest. Rivalry reaches its height in the annual football game as they battle to take home the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy. The institution prioritizes physical fitness for all students, so besides fielding a large variety of varsity teams in NCAA Division I, the school offers many club sports. Fencing, ice hockey, or powerlifting anyone?

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the school's academic highlights?
1 Answer
  • STEM fields dominate at the Naval Academy in order to meet the high-tech needs of the Navy. The institution has particular strength in electrical and mechanical engineering. Regardless of major (even English, political science, and history), all students receive a Bachelor of Science degree because of the technical content of the core curriculum. Leadership training alongside academic courses prepares students (known as midshipmen) for active duty after graduation. The U.S. Navy fully funds tuition in exchange for this post-graduation service.
