Army R.O.T.C.

Army ROTC is a college elective program designed to develop individual leadership skills for either a military or civilian career. Husson students can participate in the ROTC program during freshman and sophomore college years without any military obligation.  Credits from ROTC courses can be applied to traditional degree programs like business, criminal justice or nursing.  Students will take classes at Husson during their first two years with some physical fitness at the University of Maine campus in Orono.  Students will join with University of Maine colleagues in their third and fourth years for classes on the Orono campus.  

Army ROTC gives students a wide range of experiences while you work toward your college degree. ROTC combines classroom instruction with hands-on training. The results are skills that give an edge over peers when it comes time to look for a job. Participants may gain scholarship status in their second year and graduate from ROTC as second lieutenants in the Army.
