The Naval Science Minor allows students at the University of Maine the opportunity to complement their education with a Navy training experience. The Naval Science courses are specifically designed to prepare University of Maine students participating in the NROTC program for their future careers as Comissioned Officers in the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. By completing these Naval Science courses, students will gain applied knowledge in various areas including Personnel Management, Warfare Tactics, Engineering Systems and Navigation with a strong overall emphasis on leadership. Many of these Naval Science courses may be beneficial to University of Maine students pursuing any type of career in a leadership position and a couple courses even fulfill general education requirements, but it is advised to carefully read the course description or contact the instructor before enrolling in the course.
