The Minor in Military Science minor consists of upper-division military science courses (MLSC 301, MLSC 302, MLSC 401, MLSC 402). Students interested in this program should seek additional information from the Military Science Program office.
All enrolled cadets will take courses corresponding to their academic standing in order to remain academically aligned.
The Leadership Training Course (LTC) is four weeks of classroom and field training held during the summer at Fort Knox, KY. This course is an accelerated version of the two years of leadership development training cadets receive in the Basic Course. By transforming themselves through this rigorous training, cadets will qualify for enrollment in Advanced Army ROTC on campus - provided they have two years of college remaining (undergraduate or graduate). This course is for those who did not participate in military science during their freshman and sophomore years. It is not Army basic training and there are no drill sergeants.
Every Army ROTC cadet who enters into the Advanced Course attends the Leadership Development and Assessment Course (LDAC) at Ft. Lewis, Wash. This course normally takes place between the junior and senior years of college and is the most important training event for an Army ROTC cadet. The 29-day training event incorporates a wide range of subjects designed to develop and evaluate leadership ability. The challenges are rigorous and demanding, both mentally and physically. LDAC tests intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and stamina. These challenges provide a new perspective on an individual’s ability to perform exacting tasks and to make difficult decisions in demanding situations.
