Interested In ROTC? You’re In The Right Place.

Becoming an officer in the military takes a well-rounded mind with problem-solving experience and the ability to lead. Our Military Science program offers two minors, one in strategic studies and one in military science.

A military science or strategic studies minor from Susquehanna combines ROTC courses with those in ethics, policy, philosophy and human interactions.

Adding either of these minors to any major at Susquehanna will help in your quest for self-improvement and leadership of men and women in the armed forces.

WHAT IS ARMY ROTC?

Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) or military science education is a four-year program designed to prepare college students for Army service as commissioned officers in the active Army, or part-time in the Army Reserve or Army National Guard.

Founded in 1916, ROTC has produced more than one-half million lieutenants for America’s Army. It remains the broadest avenue for men and women seeking to serve as officers in the Army. The Army officer is a prestigious professional who serves as a leader in the most respected institution in America.

ROTC PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES

“ROTC provided an opportunity to receive an education and also serve my country. It assisted in alleviating the financial burden of college and the difficulties of finding employment following graduation, allowing me to place a greater focus on my studies. In addition, ROTC introduced me to a separate group of peers outside of my other classes. These peers challenged me to improve myself physically, mentally, and tactically in order to be competitive. Choosing to join ROTC, particularly the Bison Battalion, was instrumental in developing me for my future military and eventual civilian careers.”
