The NROTC Seapower and Maritime Affairs course is intended to be a study of the U.S. Navy and the influence of sea power upon history that incorporates both a historical and political perspective to explore the major events, attitudes, personalities, and circumstances that have imbued the U.S. Navy with its proud history and rich tradition. This course necessarily deals with issues of national imperative in peacetime as well as in war; varying maritime philosophies that were interpreted into Naval strategies and doctrines; and budgetary concerns which shaped force realities and the pursuit of American diplomatic objectives. It concludes with a discussion of the Navy’s strategic and structural changes at the end of the Cold War and its new focus, mission, and strategy in the post September 11, 2001 world.
