About Military Science (Army ROTC) 

The Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (Army ROTC) is a national program that provides college-trained officers for the U.S. Army, the Army National Guard and the U.S. Army Reserve. Army ROTC enhances students' education by providing unique leadership and management experience and helps develop self-discipline, physical stamina and poise.

This educational experience is further enhanced through the professional military education program. This program encourages students to take additional courses in military history, written communication, human behavior, management and national security studies. Participation in field training/trips is required during each semester.

The Army ROTC program at California University of Pennsylvania is a satellite program delegated by the University of Pittsburgh Military Science Program; classes take place on campus.
