About: Military Science is offered at Millsaps College and on the campus of Jackson State University (JSU) under a partnership agreement between Millsaps College, JSU, and the U.S. Army. Students enrolled at Millsaps are eligible to enroll and attend Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) classes at Millsaps and on the campus of JSU. Credits earned in ROTC at JSU will be entered onto the student’s Millsaps transcript with up to nine hours of credit awarded for the following Military Science courses only: MS 300, MS 401, MS 402, or MS 403. Combined with the classes offered at Millsaps for a total of eight hours (MLSC 1011 MLSC 1021 MLSC 1031 MLSC 1041 MLSC 2011 MLSC 2021 MLSC 2031 , and MLSC 2041 ), students can earn a minor in Military Science with a total 17 hours. The ROTC program provides students an opportunity to earn a presidential commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserve or the Army National Guard, concurrent with the pursuit of an academic degree. The program of instruction includes developing self-discipline, physical stamina, and other qualities that are cornerstones of leadership excellence. The ROTC program is divided into a basic course of instruction (freshman and sophomore classes) taken at Millsaps College and an advanced course of instruction (junior and senior classes) taken at JSU.
