Military Science (Army ROTC)
Minor in Military Science
The Military Science program prepares students for commissions as second lieutenants in the Army, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserves. The program is divided into two elective courses: the Basic Course and the Advanced Course. Students who enroll in Basic Course classes receive leadership, management and confidence-building instruction that is valued highly in any chosen career field. The Advanced Course is restricted to students who meet department criteria and who contract as a cadet to become commissioned as an Army officer with a military service obligation.
The Army observes participating students, provides critical, real-time feedback and determines their officer potential in a leadership-oriented, challenging and motivating 28-day training program.
You can attend the Leader's Training Course if you meet the following requirements:
- Have not completed all four semesters of the Military Science Basic Course (MILS 101,102; 211, 212)
- Are medically qualified to attend.
- Are transferring from a school that did not have ROTC.
- Are a junior or community college transfer entering an ROTC school and have no prior active or Reserve component military experience.
- Are a graduate student starting a two-year program.
- Are a high school graduate entering a military junior college.
Students with prior military service, or who have taken Junior ROTC, may be given credit for Basic Course completion and would not be required to attend the Leader's Training Course.
Travel expenses are covered, and students are paid a modest amount for their time at LTC.
Evangel ROTC is a member of the MSU Bear Battalion, consisting of six affiliate colleges and universities.
Students who complete the Leader's Training Course may compete for a two-year Army ROTC scholarship while at camp. These merit scholarships are awarded to the most qualified students who apply. For more information on the requirements and benefits of a Leader's Training Course scholarship, contact the EU ROTC Enrollment and Scholarship Officer, Maj. Doug Schenck, 417-836-5793.

NOTE: A minor is a secondary field of interest that is meant to complement your academic major. While your major is chosen for your intended career choice, your minor may be something you pursue for your personal interest or to augment your major.
There is no limit to the opportunities in the Army — and no limit to what you can learn and achieve. With expert training in one of over 150 different jobs for Soldiers on active duty and over 120 in the Army Reserve, the Army will provide you the training and experience that will give you a big edge over those in the civilian world.
All non-U.S. citizens must have permission before enrolling in any Military Science course.
