Upon graduation, midshipmen earn a Bachelor of Science degree in a choice of 25 subject majors and go on to serve at least five years of service as commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps.

The student body, called the Brigade of Midshipmen, is comprised of about 4,400 students from every state in the union. Each year, about 1,200 men and women are admitted to the Naval Academy’s incoming class.
