You've worked hard to get to this point in your education, and soon you will earn your degree. And like tens of thousands of other graduates across the nation, you’ll need to establish a strong resume to compete for jobs. So, how can you establish such a resume that also offers exciting career options, stands out from the rest? Receive a commission in the United States Army through Army ROTC!
Army ROTC offers classes that instill confidence and discipline, while developing practical skills that will enhance your marketability. ROTC goes beyond management theory into real-life leadership experience. And you can try ROTC classes with no military obligation.
From the start you'll learn to work with people and solve problems. More importantly, you'll put your training into practice while still a student. ROTC cadets graduate with both a diploma and a commission as a U.S. Army officer with an opportunity to serve on either active duty or with a reserve component unit.
ROTC courses prepare students to become future leaders in the U.S. Army. Students learn Army values and develop leader attributes, skills and actions. Students perform course work in the areas of Military Knowledge, Military Skills, and Professional Military Education (PME).
The Military Science Department's courses teach Military Knowledge and Military Skills. Other college departments teach courses meeting the PME requirements, which include oral and written communication, understanding the human aspects of command, military history, and the application of various computer programs. These courses, which are required for completion of the ROTC program, are annotated in the Cadet Handbook.
After earning a bachelor's degree and completing the ROTC program, cadets will commision into the army as a second lietenant either in the active army or the army reserves/guard depending on where they were ranked nationally at the end of thier four years in ROTC. The Carroll program has produced a number of officers in the military and they are stationed in various regions in the United States and around the world such as Ft Hood TX, FT Gordan GA, Ft Stewart GA, Ft Harrison MT, Ft Sam Houston TX, and Afganistan.
