This thesis examines the effects of a simplification of the U.S Navy Subspecialty System on determining graduate education quotas. A set of matching criteria is introduced by which Navy fully-funded graduate education curricula are rated for fraction commonality. Subspecialty fields, represented by their supporting curricula, are then aggregated based on various levels of curriculum commonality, and the effect on quotas quantified. Results indicate that reducing the number of subspecialty fields does not significantly alter the number of inputs required to maintain the system. The thesis also advances a model by which U.S. Navy Unrestricted Line graduate education quotas may be allocated by primary designators. This model may be used to enhance the capabilities of current models of quota determination.
