The faculty consists of both active duty officers and civilian professors. Active duty officers come from all branches, and the Department seeks variety in both branches and commissioning sources. Officers selected attend graduate school for two years to obtain the MA degree and subsequently teach for three years at the Academy.
To be eligible to compete for a position on the faculty, officers must have completed the career course and company-level command. Their records must be such that their branches are willing to nominate them for the USMA faculty. To evaluate applicants, the Department must have recent GRE scores and a copy of an officer’s undergraduate transcript. Careful consideration of potential military faculty starts about two years before the beginning of Advanced Civil Schooling (ACS). Officers interested in competing for a teaching assignment in the Department of English and Philosophy should complete the initial interest application located here.
