Department of Military Science

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of your college curriculum. During classes, leadership labs, physical training and field training exercises, you will learn firsthand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and be commissioned into the Active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard and become a leader for life.


Ready to try ROTC?

If you already know you want to learn more about the Army ROTC, register for one of our Military Science courses; or, if you're interested in a scholarship, call 208.496.4702 to schedule an interview. Remember, there's no service obligation for trying us out. Enrollment in an ROTC class does not mean you've joined the Army.


Visit the Army Strong web site to learn more about what it means to be an officer in the United States Army.
