Minor in Naval Science
The minor in Naval Science will familiarize the student with basic and advanced concepts of Naval Science with emphasis on naval history, technology, and leadership. The Institute’s motto of “Progress and Service” is embodied in military service. This minor will support the students who plan to serve their country by recognizing their academic achievement outside of their major coursework. The minor will also give students who do not pursue military service a basic working knowledge of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. Concepts learned complement any chosen career path.
