Military Science

You should minor in military science if:

  • You want to join the ROTC program and start your career in the U.S. Army or National Guard.
  • You’re interested in military strategy, history, and diplomacy.
  • You want to develop your skills as a leader and problem solver.

The military science minor is open only to students who join the University’s ROTC program. Earning your minor in military science — while you complete the ROTC program and qualify for commission as an officer — will give you a deeper understanding of military tactics, leadership, and justice.

Many of the classes for the military science minor overlap with the requirements for the ROTC program, including summer camp at Fort Lewis and leadership development courses.
