The Advanced Military Science Program
The Advanced Military Science Program at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi allows qualified students to earn commissions as Second Lieutenants in the active Army, the Army Reserve, or the National Guard. Nursing students can qualify for commissions in officer grades as high as captain, depending on graduate work and professional nursing experience.
Entry into the program is restricted to students who have demonstrated scholastic ability, excellent character, and leadership potential. Qualification is based on successful accomplishment of any one of the following:
- Honorable military service.
- Completion of the Leadership Training Camp (a 4 week summer compression program).
- Three or more years of JROTC in any branch with the appropriate recommendations.
- Completion of the first two years of the ROTC four-year program at another institution.
The two-year curriculum is centered on developing leadership and management skills. Training exercises aimed at increasing the students’ confidence are practiced throughout the program.
Graduates of this program are appointed in entry management positions in the Army depending upon their preferences, academic majors, and demonstrated leadership.
