Minoring in Military Science
The BYU-Idaho program is an extension of Boise State University Army ROTC. The ROTC program encompasses a four-year period tailored to the normal progression of a student through four years of college. Military Science is a minor field of study. Students are expected to specialize in a major field of their choice.
To complete a Military Science minor and become an officer in the U.S. Army, a student must be a U.S. citizen and must meet the academic and physical requirements of ROTC. However, the Military Science program is designed so that the first two years of study are open to most students. 100 and 200 level classes within this minor can be taken without incurring a military obligation.
