Military Science Course of Study

Traditionally, Army ROTC is a four-year program. The first two years are taken in your freshman and sophomore years (Basic Course). You can take the Basic Course on a trial basis for up to two years (unless you're on an Army ROTC scholarship).

The second two years are taken in your junior and senior years (Advanced Course). And, during the summer between your junior and senior years, you will attend National Advanced Leadership Camp at Fort Lewis, Washington, which will give you hands-on training and the confidence you can't learn in the classroom.

During the Basic Course, your studies will include:

Freshman Year

  • MSC 101: Leadership and Personal Development
  • MSC 102: Introduction to Tactical Leadership

Sophomore Year

  • MSC 201: Innovative Team Leadership
  • MSC 202: Foundations of Tactical Leadership

During the Advanced Course, your studies will include:

Junior Year

  • MSC 301: Adaptive Tactical Leadership
  • MSC 302: Leadership in Changing Environments

Senior Year

  • MSC 401: Developing Adaptive Leaderstives
  • MSC 402: Leadership in a Complex World
  • MSC 421: The American Military Experience

During the summer, you may choose to further your training by attending schools such as Airborne, Air Assault, Northern Warfare, and Mountain Warfare. You may also train in places such as Hawaii, Germany, or Korea.
