The minor in Joint Military Studies is offered to both traditional students and those actively pursuing a presidential-level commission as a military officer (via Army or Air Force ROTC). In-line with the university’s 2020 Strategic Plan, the minor advances professional preparedness, cross-cultural competencies, life skills, and social responsibility for the 21st century. The minor accomplishes this through academics and experiential learning of the profession of arms, communication skills, leadership studies, military history, and international security studies.
For traditional students, completing the specialized coursework provides a vantage point for employment within the U.S. Government or defense-related industries. For officer candidates, the minor delivers critical knowledge of “joint” force operating principles, including how the military branches partner together with government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and other nations to conduct full-spectrum joint operations.
A minor consists of 18 to 24 credits. At least six credits must be taken in courses at the 3000 level or above. Coursework is selected in consultation with the faculty adviser.
