Department of Military Science

Rise to the top

Mercer University’s Department of Military Science will prepare you for a successful future in military service. With courses that strongly tie into Mercer’s ethics, leadership and service initiatives, you will develop into a disciplined, professional, and responsible student who is willing to learn and serve others.

Students who take courses in the Military Science Department may choose to pursue a career in military service, but there is no military obligation.

The department is home to Mercer University’s ROTC program, which commissions officers into the U.S. Army.
