Military Science programs aim to prepare students for careers in the United States Army. Should you choose to major in Military Science, you’ll be taking traditional university courses while learning how to foster soldier-citizen relationships in an academic setting. Your training in a Military Science program includes familiarizing yourself with leadership roles, American history, ethics, and military law. There are also several field components: you’ll be participating in rifle shooting, obstacle courses, rappelling, and many other outdoor activities. During your college experience you’ll be working to improve your physical fitness as well as your leadership skills. Generally, many activities are held outside the university, such as visiting actual battlefields or studying in other Army-run programs like Airborne and Air Assault training.
