ROTC Career Opportunities

The ROTC program is designed to train students of any major to be a leader in the military.

Upon completion of the Army ROTC program, graduates will be commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Army and will embark on specialized training in their first Army branch.  Upon completion of Officer branch training and a first assignment, Army Officers may pursue additional specialized training and postgraduate education opportunities.  They will be assigned to advanced leadership positions and to staff positions in upper management. Also, they may develop doctrine, teach military tactics or serve as advisors.

 

Additionally, the leadership training associated with ROTC and the military is valued greatly by United States industry as well as for government service.  Industry knows that the responsibility given to officers greatly exceeds that given to their civilian counterparts.  Military service is almost a prerequisite for government civil service jobs and service as an officer is best.

 

Finally it goes without saying that the skills of leadership learned in ROTC and in the Army enable students to become leaders in their field of study or in their career, as well as in their community and service organizations.
