The Marquette University Department of Naval Science offers a naval science minor area of study for undergraduate students interested in pursuing a commission as an officer in the United States Navy or Marine Corps. The primary purpose of this minor is to teach prospective Naval and Marine Corps Officers the history of the Navy, current naval affairs, maritime strategy and the evolution of that strategy throughout the Navy and Marine Corps, operations and functions of current naval vessels, as well as a strong and continuing emphasis on leadership and moral decision making throughout every one of the classes. The course work provides students with the opportunity to acquire sound judgment, leadership, historical knowledge and current naval functions which are essential in becoming an officer in the Navy and Marine Corps.
