Military Science Course Descriptions

The Military Science program leads to a commission as an officer in the Army Reserve, National Guard, or Active Duty Army. The program consists of four parts: the student’s academic major, nondepartmental courses of value to the military service, courses in military science, and a six-week Leader Development and Assessment course. The department offers a four-year program divided into two parts: the basic course (two years) and the advanced course (two years). Selected students may qualify for the two-year program with prior military service or successful completion of a six-week summer Leaders’ Training Course. Financial assistance and scholarships are available for qualified individuals. Students should contact the Department of Military Science to obtain additional information.
