Academic Departments of the Coast Guard Academy

Academic resources are organized as five departments under the supervision of the Dean of Academics. The sixth Department, Health and Physical Education, is led by the Director of Athletics and delivers some general education courses.

The primary duty of faculty is cadet instruction and advising. Most faculty members contribute outside of the classroom as club advisors, assistant coaches, and academic administrators. As a result, faculty are all highly accessible to cadets.
