Military Science/Army ROTC

United States Army ROTC

Army ROTC is a university elective that teaches you the skills needed for a successful career. You'll combine classroom time with hands-on experience, and learn leadership and management skills. And because it's an elective, you can try it out for up to two years. Whatever you decide, the experience you'll gain in Army ROTC will give you the confidence you need to be a success in college and beyond. Whether you choose to pursue a career in the Army or in the corporate world, Army ROTC is "unlike any other college course you can take."

How ROTC Works

While enrolled at Methodist University, you will participate in 1-9 hours of classroom instruction and leadership labs per week. You'll be in the best physical shape in your life by attending physical training 3-4 days per week. And you will receive first-rate Army training in the field every semester.

Your Commitment

Upon graduation, you will be expected to serve in the Army for a total of 8 years. Or you may serve part time in the Army National Guard or Army Reserve with a Guaranteed Reserve Forces Duty commission. You may request an educational delay to attend medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, law or graduate school if you choose.
