Military Science Curriculum

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Basic and Applied Sciences

Military Science courses are designed to fulfill the educational and training requirements for commissioning in the U.S. Army (Regular Army, U.S. Army Reserve, or Army National Guard). The curriculum consists of a basic course (first two years) and an advanced course (final two years). The basic course is open to all MTSU students without incurring any military service obligation. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, or Air Force basic training graduates can be placed directly into the advanced course. Advanced placement may also be earned by attending the four-week leader training course at Fort Knox, Kentucky, normally between the sophomore and junior years. The advanced course is offered during the last four semesters of Military Science and includes a five-week Leader Development and Assessment Course (LDAC) at Fort Lewis, Washington. Upon successful completion of the advanced course and upon graduation from the University, the student will be commissioned a second lieutenant in the United States Army.


*MS 3000  is only for students who have not had freshman or sophomore ROTC class or have not been to basic training.

Students may also enroll in MS 1000  to participate in physical training, color guard, and/or Forrest Raiders.
