As the military branch tasked with protecting our nation’s waterways, the Navy remains diligent in areas of maritime security and undersea warfare. In 1971, as the Cold War continued and the perceived threat of Soviet submarines loomed into the deep seas, NPS responded with the development of the first academic group on campus. The Undersea Warfare Academic Group (USWAG) was established to create a curriculum focused on an interdisciplinary approach to Undersea Warfare in a way that would prepare naval officers for the challenges of the time. The group downgraded to a committee in 2001 after it seemed the end of the Cold War also meant the end of sub-sea threats against the U.S.
