Basic GMS Courses

The first four semesters of Military Science (100- and 200- series courses) constitute the basic program, allowing the student to gain insight into the military as a profession without incurring any military obligation. The student learns about the role of the U.S. Army in providing for national security, basic leadership and management skills, as well as basic military skills.

The student is afforded the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities, such as rappelling, swim survival and whitewater rafting, besides participating in various social activities sponsored by the Cadet Corps.
