Why Earn a Military Science Minor?

Army ROTC is a college elective course designed to develop individual leadership skills for either a military or civilian career. You can participate in the ROTC program during your freshman and sophomore college years without any military obligation.

Unlike traditional college programs, Army ROTC gives you a wide range of experiences while you work toward your college degree. You'll combine classroom instruction with hands-on training. The results are skills that give you an edge over your peers when it comes time to look for a job. Whether you're planning a career in the Army or the corporate world, Army ROTC is a smart elective course to take.

Military Science Minor Highlights

As part of Army ROTC, you'll be in the company of a diverse group of individuals with broad interests – individuals who are elected student leaders, presidents of student organizations, captains of varsity sports teams, and members of academic honors societies.
You'll meet with other Cadets once a week as a group for leadership laboratory, along with your regular ROTC academic class instruction.
During lab, Cadets wear the army uniforms and conduct military and leadership training.
Students can take ROTC as an elective course or pursue the entire program, which culminates in a commission as a Second Lieutenant – an Army Officer.
ROTC promotes a physically fit lifestyle and provides a drug-free environment.
The Army ROTC program at the University of North Texas is currently open to students at UNT, Texas Woman's University, and Collin College.
