Starfleet Academy Curriculum
All Starfleet officers must attend Starfleet Academy and complete a minimum four year training program. Much like a normal university, cadets at any StarFleet Academy campus have choices when they're compiling their courseload and choosing their focus.
Most students enter the Academy at age 18. The Academy adds four years to that, plus one year for each Cadet Cruise taken (if any). Those who wish to pursue a career in command can add two more years of specialised command training. The Academy consists of two primary campuses, one at San Francisco, Earth, the other on Starbase 1, in orbit around Earth. However there are other affiliated campuses spread across the Federation. There are several other training sites in sector 001, including a flight training area near Saturn's orbit.
All students who apply must have a certain level of learning prior to admission. This includes being able to speak, read, and write Federation Standard, and having good mathematics skill. However, Starfleet Academy is very selective, and only has a limited number of spaces available for prospective Cadets. Students may wish to have already studied a variety of subjects in order to increase their chances of acceptance. All students who apply to the Starfleet Marine Academy must pass a high level of physical requirements. Students who show great promise, upon acceptance to the academy, are made Red Squad cadets, the best of the best.
After admission, Cadets begin the standard four-year program to train for their roles in Starfleet. During the first two years at the Academy, Cadets gain a solid background in the skills important to all Starfleet officers in the Academy's General Studies program.
In order to be considered for positions aboard prestigious vessels, like the Enterprise, skills should be much higher. Honors graduates have very high skill levels. They are among the first considered for positions aboard those vessels. The class Valedictorian and Salutatorian each may choose their station assignment, making these graduates the most highly prized.
To compile a curriculum, you can begin by reviewing the sections below:
This area is completely In Character, and does not dictate any part of your real training to become a part of our group. Neither is there any area of our website where you can actually take any of the courses listed here. Compiling a list of courses your character has taken is completely optional and is generally used to fill out your character bio more completely.
