Military Schools Data Project

This project documents the existence of national military schools in all countries, ca. 1800–present, in order to understand patterns of growth in military educational institutions around the world. This helps give a picture for how norms of military professionalism have developed over time. In the future, data collection will encompass curriculum, student body size, and program statistics, but for this phase the focus is on officer education at four levels: pre-commissioning academy, company course, staff-level course, and senior-level course.
