The mission of the Department of Military Science is to recruit, train, educate, and commission young men and women to be second lieutenants in the United States Army, the United States Army Reserve, and the Army National Guard.

In order to prepare cadets for service in support of the nation, the Department utilizes a variety of methods, techniques, and training environments. They include classroom sessions, leadership laboratories, field training exercises, summer camps, physical training, intercollegiate competitions, and special skills training. The program of instruction stresses leadership, communication skills, decision making, military history, Army values, ethics, physical fitness, tactics, and technical knowledge.

Military Science (MLSC) 101 and 102 are open to all students. Students can take Military Science classes for two years without any military obligation. Students who wish to pursue a commission as a second lieutenant and contract with the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) must have at least a 2.5 grade point average, be a full-time student, meet the medical standards established in Army Regulation 40-501, pass an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT), and meet the height and weight standards as outlined in Army Regulation 600-9.
