Our Story

The Department of Military Science (ARMY) offers courses that develop individual and group skills. Our motto is simple: we develop leadership skills for a lifetime! These skills are enhanced through the study of individual leadership development, teamwork, supervision, management, and military principles. All courses stress practical application of military instruction and the critical role of the United States Army in a modern society and global community. The department offers students elective courses, or the opportunity to become part of two, three, or four year programs. The program develops student proficiency in planning, executing, and assessing complex operations, functioning as a member of a staff, and providing performance feedback to subordinates. Students explore the dynamics of leading in the complex situations of current military operations in the contemporary operating environment (COE). Students will examine differences in customs and courtesies, military law, principles of war, and rules of engagement in the face of international terrorism. Students also explore aspects of interacting with non-government organizations, civilians on the battlefield, and host nation support. The completion of these programs results in the students being awarded a Second Lieutenant Commission. Options include Active, Reserves, and Army National Guard assignments. The Department of Military Science does not offer a major. We now offer a military science minor.
