Minor in Military Science

Minor courses of study are academic programs designed to satisfy students’ personal interest and to meet their professional needs. Students explore, in some depth, the offerings in a field of study. 

The Minor in Military Science program is structured to provide students with foundational knowledge in military practices, history, homeland security principles, and management basics. This foundational coursework lays the groundwork for deeper exploration through elective subjects within the minor, offering a broad perspective that is both comprehensive and adaptable to a range of academic and career interests. 

A minor course of study provides the student with significant experience in a discipline organized around skills, methodology, and subject matter. To gain the greatest value from their academic experience, students are encouraged to select minors that complement their degree program and/or other minors that they are pursuing. 

The student becomes subject to the requirements of the minor as stated in the catalog that are in effect at the time the minor is declared. The department/program chair responsible for a particular minor determines how students fulfill deficits in credits for a minor and certifies that students are qualified to receive the minor.
