Military Science Program

Becoming an officer in the military takes a well-rounded mind with problem-solving experience and the ability to lead. Susquehanna’s Military Science Programs offers a Military Science minor and a Strategic Studies minor. Adding either of these minors to any major at Susquehanna will help in your quest for self-improvement and leadership in the armed forces.

ROTC Program

The Army’s Reserve Officer Training Corps program prepares college graduates for entry-level positions within the United States Army. Many graduates serve for extended periods on active duty with the regular Army; others pursue civilian careers while serving part time in the Army Reserve or the National Guard. ROTC students are eligible for an academic stipend and scholarship assistance. Susquehanna participates in the ROTC program based at Bucknell University.
