Advanced Operational Arts Studies Fellowship
Definition/Scope: (AR 350-1) The Advanced Operational Art Studies Fellowship (AOASF) is the capstone program of the School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS). Focused at the operational and strategic levels of war, AOASF is a two-year Senior Service College-level course that prepares senior officers for colonel-level command and for operational planning assignments to combatant and service component commands. During year one, fellows follow a curriculum that includes graduate-level study of military art and science, visits to combatant and service component commands, guest speakers, and practical exercises in campaign and major operations planning. Graduates of AOASF may earn a master's degree in Military Arts and Sciences and receive Military Education code 1 (War College level graduate) credit.
