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 military history 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 , MILS 1102 , MILS 2201 and MILS 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 , MILS 3302 , MILS 4401 and MILS 4402 ). All students must be contracted prior to enrolling in the Advanced Course.
