The purpose of this thesis is to review the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Army policies regarding graduate education at civilian institutions. Particular attention is paid to Congressional, General Accounting Office (GAO), Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and Army reviews of DOD and Army policies and program execution. Issues investigated are: (1) The identification of graduate education requirements via an annual position-by-position validation process; (2) Whether or not this process identifies the Army's total requirements, functionally and cognitively; (3) Whether DOD and Army utilization policies regarding assignment of officers with graduate education to specific validated positions are appropriate; (4) Whether a better methodology to validate requirements and utilize officers with graduate degrees exists which will satisfy both the professional development needs of the officer corps and the Army.
