What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Some the the hardest classes I have ever taken. Statics, Physics II, etc. I skated by with almost a 4.0 in high school and have never studied harder in my life to get a B in a class. The academics are hard because of the lack of time you have with all of the military obligations etc.

Core requirements in engineering, natural sciences, the humanities and social sciences, assure that graduates are able to think critically, solve increasingly technical problems in a dynamic, global environment, and express conclusions clearly. There are courses and practical training to teach the leadership and professional skills required of Navy and Marine Corps officers.
And there are academic majors and minors that permits a midshipman to explore a discipline in some depth and prepare for graduate level work.
I hear is it hard. But I also hear that there are more than enough people to help you out including your peers, teachers, and your laptop.

From what I have heard, this school has some of the most challenging and rigorous coursework in the nation, and perhaps the world.

Not entirely sure, from what I've seen though, it's great.
