 Changing Educational Goals at the United States Naval Academy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Naval Academy met changing technical and operational requirements in an evolutionary way; changes were always designed to meet the needs of the Navy while retaining the common educational experience considered by many to be essential for creating a cadre of dedicated and technically proficient officers.
The current USNA Catalog states it very clearly: "The needs of the Navy require that at least 80% of midshipmen in each class be enrolled in engineering, scientific, or mathematics majors." Candidates are advised of this requirement before selection, and they are continually and forcefully reminded of it on several occasions prior to majors selection.
THE U.S. Naval Academy, like the academies of its sister services, was created in order to increase the professionalism of the officer corps.* The continuing development of the curriculum over the years, culminating in implementation of the majors-for-all programs, has always been designed to accomplish this objective.
