Military 401 & 402

Military Science and Leadership 402 are designed for students to be able to plan, execute, and assess complex operations. They also have the ability to function as members of a staff and provide feedback on leadership performance to their subordinates. These courses give students the opportunity to evaluate risk, analyze Military History and make ethical decisions. They also provide mentorship to other Military Science students. To further enhance their leadership skills, students will need to evaluate and analyze their own leadership abilities as well as the leadership abilities of other cadets. All students in Military Science 401/402 will be participating in Army Physical Training four times a week, Military Leadership Labs one time a week, as well as a Battalion Level Field Training exercise each semester. All MS 401 Cadets are required to participate in a Military Staff Ride. This is part of their professional development.

Military Science 301 & 302 

Military Science 301 and 302. These courses require Cadets’ leadership skills to be evaluated, practiced and assessed as they prepare for the R.O.T.C. Advanced Camp Leader Development Program (LDP). In order to help students develop critical thinking and self-awareness, they are exposed to challenging situations involving small-unit tactical operations. The expectations are that cadets will be able to communicate effectively both in writing and oral. Peers and instructors provide structured and specific feedback on the leadership qualities, attributes, skills, and actions of cadets. All students enrolled in Military Science 301/302 receive classroom instruction as well as Army Physical Training three to five times a week, Military Leadership Labs one time a week, and a battalion level field training exercise every semester.
