The Department of Military Science (Army ROTC) offers students an opportunity to pursue a 2, 3, or 4-year program of instruction that will lead to an officer’s commission in the US Army upon graduation. Students may do this in conjunction with earning any bachelor’s degree. The Army ROTC curriculum provides all leadership and military skills training necessary to meet commissioning requirements.
