Military Science

Undergrad minor

The ROTC program is not an academic major. Instead, ROTC courses — open to all undergraduates — are taken in conjunction with the regular academic subjects required for an undergraduate degree. Joining ROTC is simply a matter of registering for one of the military science classes. 

Our Military Science Minor has much crossover with the ROTC program but is multifaceted when it comes to professional application. The electives exhibit the general understanding of how to lead, have a fair understanding of politics as well as the current state of world politics, and knowing the history of other countries.

Minor Requirements

21 Credits
