The military science program offers courses of study leading to an academic minor in military science and an officer’s commission in the United States Army. Students may enroll in lower-division courses without incurring a military service obligation. The lower-division courses provide theoretical and practical training in leadership and management principles and applications, basic military skills, and officer responsibilities.
Students who do not wish to pursue a commission may still earn a minor in Military Science with alternate requirements.
Any undergraduate student can pursue this minor.
The minor consists of at least 21 credits.
Contracted cadets are required to take MSC 103 (fall) or MS 104 (spring) each semester enrolled; each session earns 1 credit
Applicants for commissioning will complete a Leadership Development Advanced Course (off-campus) following their junior year.
In order to complete this minor, students must sign a contract with the intent to commission with the U.S. Army by the end of the semester in which they take MSC 301.
