dc.description.abstractThis thesis examined the effect of the Summer Training Program on the vocational development of midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy. Data from 355 First Class midshipmen were analyzed to examine the impact of the Summer Training Program on United States Naval Academy Midshipmen career choices. It was hypothesized that the Summer Training Program would have a significant impact on career selection after controlling for the effects of demographic, academic and military factors. Results of hierarchical regression analyses indicate that the Summer Training Program had a differential impact on Midshipmen's career choice. Specifically, it was found that participating in career relevant training had a significant impact on both tentative career choice and final career choice. All of the Summer Training Programs were found to be significant in the study. The results suggest that the greatest impact for career choice was on those midshipmen that participated in Leatherneck Summer Training Programen_US
