About the Military Science Department

School of Social & Cultural Studies: Military Science Department

The Military Science Department at Truman provides a challenging academic environment that develops confident, competent, and adaptive leaders. All Truman academic majors can pursue a minor in military science and participate in U.S. Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), an educational program that develops self-discipline, leadership, management, and other qualities essential to success in life.

As part of our active learning community, all of our students are encouraged to make connections across a wide range of endeavors — one of the hallmarks of a Truman education — and our rigorous Military Science program provides tools, training, and experiences that can help students succeed in any competitive environment.

Successful completion of ROTC and the earning of a bachelor’s (or master’s) degree can lead to an officer’s commission in the United States Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard.
