Build essential leadership skills

Leadership skills are essential in any field or industry, from business and finance to medicine, marketing, education or science. SFA’s ROTC offers classes and field training activities that will help you develop the real-world leadership skills you’ll need to succeed, whether you plan to pursue a career in the military or in the civilian world.   

Welcome to the Department of Military Science

Our mission is to recruit, educate, develop and inspire Army ROTC cadets to commission into the U.S. Army. This is an on-campus, officer-commissioning program that adds military training to the students’ education. 

Upon successful completion of the ROTC training program, and after a cadet receives a bachelor's degree, they will be commissioned as a second lieutenant in either the U.S. Army, Army National Guard or Army Reserve. If students are unsure of a career in the U.S. Army, they may take military science courses without any military obligation.
