NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL. Monterey, California 93943 (408) 646-2411. The United States Navy established the School of Marine Engineering at Annapolis, Maryland, on June 9, 1909, with ten naval officers as students and three professors. Marine engineering was the only course offered. The school was closed in 1917 and reopened in 1919 with Captain (later Admiral) Ernest Joseph King as head. The name was changed to United States Naval Postgraduate School. In 1927 the general line course was established. In 1947 Congress established the school as a separate unit under its own superintendent. It was granted authority to award bachelor, master, and doctoral degrees. Monterey, California, was designated as the future home of the school. The general line course, closed during the war, was reopened at Monterey, California, and Annapolis, Maryland. In 1951 the former Del Monte Hotel in Monterey was purchased, and the school was officially established there on December 22, 1951. Women officers were admitted in 1956.

In 1956 the Navy Management School was established, and in 1958 the General Line School became the General Line and Naval Science School with the authority to grant bachelor of science degrees to selected officers who had not completed their undergraduate education. The bachelor of arts degree was authorized in 1961. In 1973 the Naval Postgraduate school, Naval War College, and United States Naval Academy* were made components of the Naval Education and Training Command at Pensacola, Florida. The Continuing Education Program was instituted in June 1974. Space Systems Operations and Engineering curricula were established at the school in 1981. On the 600-acre campus are Hermann Hall administration building; Spanagel, Bullard, Halligan, Root, and Ingersoll halls classroom buildings; Dudley Knox Library; King Hall lecture hall; and housing units. Among former students and graduates are many past and present Navy flag officers, including Chief-of-Naval Operations James D. Watkins and admirals Arleigh A. Burke and Hyman George Rickover.
