Military Science (Army ROTC)


Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) is a program which combines college courses in military science with summer training sessions to turn students into officers. Upon successful completion of the program and graduation, cadets are awarded a commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army, the Army National Guard, or the U.S. Army Reserve.

Army ROTC offers two different programs to all qualified college and university students. The traditional four-year program gives students the opportunity to take ROTC courses in each of their four years of college. The two-year program is available for community and junior college students as well as any other students who did not take ROTC during the first two years of college. Both of these programs are offered at more than 1,000 colleges and universities throughout the United States. Washington University is the host institution in the St. Louis area. Students from Missouri Baptist University may enroll in Military Science courses through a cross-enrollment agreement with Washington University. Enrollment for all other courses is at Missouri Baptist University. Course descriptions for the Military Science courses are listed in this catalog under MLS.
