Military Science and Leadership (MSL) courses are open to students having an interest in physical and mental challenges, organizational leadership, management, history, and the military as a profession. Military Science and Leadership courses are also the path to receiving an active or reserve Army commission and a three or four year tour of service as an officer leader.
Interested students may compete for scholarships through the Army ROTC Program. (See Scholarships for further information.) Students in the Military Science and Leadership program attend one to three hours of formal instruction and one two-hour leadership laboratory per week. Students also enroll in physical training three times a week. The goal of the army ROTC Program is to develop prospective officers to meet the challenges of becoming a future Army leader. The program is designed to develop confident, competent and adaptive leaders with the basic military science and leadership foundation necessary not only to lead small units in the Contemporary Operating Environment (COE) but also to evolve into the Army’s future senior leaders.
The MSL courses are sequential and progressive. Participation in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and the signing of an agreement for military service following graduation are not required for taking the freshman and sophomore military science courses (MSL 101A CM , MSL 101B CM , and MSL 102A CM , MSL 102B CM ). These courses are excellent opportunities for students interested in gaining leadership experience. All students interested in attending the Army’s Leadership Training Program in the summer are highly encouraged to enroll in MSL 102B CM .
