The Department of Naval Science offers the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps Program which is designed to assist in the education of well qualified young men and women who are interested in earning a commission in the Navy, Marine Corps, or their reserve components. The NROTC Program is built on five elements: academic major of student’s choice, Navy-specified course work taught at the university, Navy or Marine Corps professional courses taught by the Naval Science Department, naval professional training, and summer training.
