The Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) programs at the University of Arkansas provide physical and mental challenges that are not offered anywhere else on campus. The ROTC programs prepare young men and women for careers as professional military officers. In addition to academic studies, each service requires that all students attend a weekly leadership laboratory.
The freshman and sophomore courses are electives offered to male and female students who may earn four hours of academic credit in Aerospace Studies or up to six hours in Military Science. Absolutely no military obligation is incurred by non-scholarship students as a result of their enrollment in or completion of any or all of their freshman or sophomore ROTC courses.
