Air Force, Army, Navy ROTC

Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is an elective program that runs in conjunction with your existing degree program. You receive college credit for your ROTC classes and some courses may be used to meet degree requirements for your college major. ROTC classes will teach you leadership, management, values, ethics, military skills, and effective communication.

ROTC is, at its essence, an officer commissioning program. We encourage anyone interested in the armed forces and a military career to enroll in our basic level courses. These courses do not have any prerequisites or commitments and are designed to teach basic military leadership fundamentals. Only scholarship students or students that advance to our upper-level courses incur any service obligation.

“I really didn’t know much about ROTC before I received my national scholarship, but since joining I’ve made so many friends. I’m so glad I chose Duquesne. The program is fantastic and the University is close to premiere healthcare facilities at UPMC and Allegheny Health Network. It’s really been an invaluable experience.”
