Navy Undergraduate Teaching Program Offers Unparalleled Travel Opportunities

By Ron Hamm

Teaching in the Navy, while traveling to places such as Australia
You can get a job teaching college level courses aboard a Navy ship and see the world!

The admonition to “Join the Navy and see the world” has been heeded by a host of part-time civilian instructors, including me, who teach college courses aboard ship while visiting exotic ports wherever ships of the U.S. fleets call. Of course, the instructors don’t actually join the Navy. They just enjoy the travel.

Working for the Navy College Program, I’ve marveled at the wonders of ancient Rome and Pompeii, strolled through the medieval walled city of Rhodes, gaped at Dubai’s gold and silk souks, been caught up by the spell of Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and spotted kangaroos in Australia’s Outback while chatting up the long-distance Aussie bus drivers. My next departure is for Baltic ports in Germany and Poland.

All official travel and related expenses are covered, including food, medical care, etc., while aboard ship. The flight home is also paid, so spending a couple of weeks touring Spain after disembarking at Rota, for instance, is no problem

For more information on a variety of other existing programs, see the Marine Corps Education Programs website which includes the Navy College Program.
