Army ROTC Leadership Studies

Close Request info for Army ROTC Leadership Studies

The Army ROTC is a program of leadership and military skills training. It prepares Campbellsville University students, in partnership with Western Kentucky University, for officer responsibilities in the active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard.

The ROTC program offers a Leadership Studies Minor in the School of Business, Economics, and Technology that can be combined with any major field of study. Please contact Dr. Bill Adams at wladams@campbellsville.edu for information about the program.

In addition to completing courses in the minor, all ROTC students must complete a military history course in order to be commissioned. Campbellsville University offers HST 465 Introduction to Military History. Please see the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences to determine when the military history course will be offered.
