Military science, better known as Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), is a challenging program that focuses on training the future leaders of the United States Army and the nation. Upon successful completion of all degree and ROTC requirements, students will earn a commission as a second lieutenant. Graduates have the opportunity to serve on active duty or in the reserve component (Army Reserve or Army National Guard) where they can put their degrees to work immediately after graduation. ROTC will teach you how to think critically, problem solve, and manage time and resources as a future United States Army officer.
At UW-Stevens Point, you’ll join one of the best ROTC programs in the Midwest which consistently scores above the national average in multiple Leadership Development and Assessment Course (LDAC) categories. Many of these accolades are a direct reflection of the training you will receive here. Additionally, you will be assigned a mentor who will assist with questions and help you get integrated into the program. Our cadets are a very cohesive group and tend to build lifelong relationships.
