Army ROTC provides you with the tools, training, and experiences you need to become an Officer in the U.S. Army. In Army ROTC you will learn to become a leader-not just a person who gives orders. You will lead by example. Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a counselor, a strategist, and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. You will be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.

The Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program has been a part of McDaniel College since 1919 and is one of the oldest programs in the nation. Students can be guaranteed service as an officer with the Army Reserve, Army National Guard or serve full time with the Active Army. Officers serve in a variety of fields, including aviation, medical, personnel, armor, artillery, infantry, intelligence, cyber, communications, law enforcement, and engineering.
No major is offered in this field, however, Military Science can be an integral part of a student-designed major or minor and/or an elective for any major. The courses are designed to develop the leadership ability of each student.
ROTC Cadet training involves classroom instructions on leadership techniques, time management, ethics, critical thinking skills, and military operations. Cadets are provided the opportunity to apply their knowledge and understanding in a field setting during weekly practical exercise called a Lab. This provides the opportunity for ht cadets to challenge themselves and learn in a safe environment. Labs range from topics covering Drill and Ceremony and Team Building, to Land Navigation and Squad Tactics. All Labs are designed to develop the knowledge and leadership abilities of the cadets; Labs are run by the Military Science (MS) III class.
