The Military Science and Leadership Minor develops undergraduate students organizational and management skills necessary to lead in the 21st century. The minor uses practical application and hands on learning to develop core competencies such as mental agility, communications, and developing others. The minor focuses on leadership skills that get results using a professional ethos framework that emphasizes mission accomplishment, innovation and teamwork. Students will understand the importance of a manager’s ability to develop goals and communicate a vision in order to create a cohesive organization that is committed to lifelong learning, bonded together by trust and teamwork. At the end of a Cadet’s Junior year, each cadet is required to attend LDAC (Leadership Development and Assessment Course). Students successfully completing this minor will have the opportunity to earn a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army.
Note: Most courses included in this minor have prerequisites that may be met through multiple options. The capstone is only required for students pursuing a commission.
