MS Class Overview

 

Military Science Class Overview:

Military Science (MS) classes are held once a week for 1.5 – 2 hours each session depending on MS level. Military Cadre members with years of operational experience in the Army are the primary instructors for the course. The MS classes are similar to other college classes in that there is a syllabus, quizzes, tests, homework assignments, and grades, but the content is focused on leadership development, military skills, time management, operational planning, and other areas essential for future Army officers. MS classes are part of the University’s course catalog and grades count as part of the Grade Point Average like any other class at the university.
