Online applications for the 2012-13 Fleet Seminar Program (FSP) are now being accepted by the U.S. Naval War College (NWC). Applications will be accepted until June 30.
The FSP offers Navy and joint-intermediate-level professional military education with a set of three courses: Strategy and War, Theater Security Decision Making, and Joint Maritime Operations.
Each of the courses mentioned above would normally require one academic year to complete. For FSP, seminars for each course meet one night a week for about 34 weeks, starting in September this year and ending in May 2013. Course materials are provided on loan, and there is no tuition fee.
These courses mirror the content and atmosphere of the intermediate program of study offered by the resident College of Naval Command and Staff program in Newport, Rhode Island. Those who successfully complete the FSP are awarded a College of Naval Command and Staff diploma, and credit for intermediate joint professional military education (JPME) phase one.
The NWC FSP will be offered in 20 regional locations across the country for academic year 2012-13. These locations include Washington, D.C.; Annapolis, Md.; Bangor, Wash.; Dahlgren, Va.; Everett, Wash.; Fort Meade, Md.; Fort Worth, Texas; Great Lakes, Ill.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Mayport, Fla.; Millington, Tenn.; New Orleans, La.; Newport, R.I.; Norfolk, Va.; Patuxent River, Md.; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Pensacola, Fla.; Port Hueneme, Calif.; San Diego, Calif.; and Whidbey Island, Wash.
