This thesis examines the perceived gap between the education and training given to midshipmen in their final semester at the United States Naval Academy prior to commissioning, and the expectations of the stakeholders upon receiving that commission. More specifically, this study examines to what level an ensign reporting on board his first submarine is educated and trained, and whether or not this meets the needs of the command and the Navy. In order to determine if a gap exists, in-depth interviews were conducted with submarine junior officers, submarine commanding officers, and professors at the United States Naval Academy. The needs of each of these stakeholders were then correlated with instructional imperatives required to fulfill each need. Based on these correlations, recommendations are offered on the design of the capstone course.
