NAVSCI 411 Amphibious Warfare (3) – The curriculum for Amphibious Warfare provides students with an in-depth historical basis of the progressive development of military amphibious operations from the early 400 B.C. period to present day military operations. Integral to the course is the understanding of the evolution of military tactics, techniques and procedures in relation to technological advances throughout history and the role of time, space and logistics in military operations. Students conduct detailed research projects of current amphibious operations ranging from amphibious operations in the littorals, humanitarian assistance/disaster relief and non-combatant evacuation operations around the world.
