This thesis validates the Naval Postgraduate School NPS curriculum used to educate the potential Defense Systems Analyst DSA for the Marine Corps. The validation is accomplished in terms of the roles and functions which exist in the Marine Corps for the DSA. The DSAs role is investigated by first examining systems analysis the discipline in which he is educated. Then the functions accomplished in each DSA billet MOS 9652 are examined to provide a basis for determining the educational needs of the DSA. A profile is generated to clarify the DSAs role in the Marine Corps. Finally, the NPS curriculum is compared with a tested systems analysis curriculum used previously at the University of Rochester to validate the systems analysis portion of the NPS curriculum. The functional requirements on the DSA resulting from a billet analysis provide the basis for validation of the remainder of the NPS curriculum.
