ROTC Courses

The Reserve Officer Training Corps program is a four-year course of study leading to a commission in the United States Army. In addition to a major, students must satisfy requirements in written and oral communications skills, military history, math reasoning, and computer literacy and complete the appropriate military science courses. Students interested in this program should first consult with the Army ROTC Department.

Basic military science courses (MILS 1101, 1102, 2201 and 2202) involve four (4) semesters during the freshman and sophomore years. Students learn leadership and management and acquire essential background knowledge of customs and traditions, weapons, map reading, tactics and survival. Equally important, these courses have the objective of developing the students’ leadership, self-discipline, integrity and sense of responsibility. Those students who successfully complete the Basic Course, meet the Army Physical Standards, and demonstrate Officer potential are considered for contracting and enrolling in the Advanced Course (MILS 3301, 3302, 4401 and 4402).  All students must be contracted prior to enrolling in the Advanced Course.
