On Midrats 6 May 2018 - Episode 435: STEM and the Education of a Navy Leader

Please join us at 5pm EDT on 6 May 2018 for Midrats Episode 435: STEM and the Education of a Navy Leader
The majority of our officers come from two sources, NROTC and the
United States Naval Academy. The Navy has a policy a bias towards STEM majors (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to the point where 65 percent of USNA Midshipmen major in STEM.

Is this in the best interest of educating future officers of our modern Navy and Marine Corps so they can effectively lead Sailors and Marines at war and peace?

To discuss this and related issues for the full hour will be USNA Midshipman First Class Kirk Wolff. We will use his recent Proceedings Today article, Rethinking the Naval Academy Curriculum as a starting off point.

Kirk is origionally from Morristown, Tennessee. He majored in
Political Science at USNA and will serve as a surface warfare officer upon commissioning on May 25, 2018.
