Military Studies: Military Science (Minor)
To see more about what you will learn in this program, visit the Learning Outcomes website!
The Departments of Aerospace Studies (AS), Military Science (MS), and Naval Science (NS) offers a minor in Military Studies to any undergraduate degree student interested in learning about military skills and careers. Students will develop the mental, moral, and physical skills needed to make them capable of being stronger leaders. The desire to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship, and government will be instilled. Students will also be instilled the highest ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty in order to commission college graduates as officers with a basic professional background and motivation toward careers in the military.
To be admitted to the program, a student must have a GPA of at least 2.0. Application for admission to any University minor program is now available via MyPack Portal. Admission will be based upon the student’s academic record, and in most cases no longer requires departmental review. To apply to Add a Minor, go to: https://go.ncsu.edu/minor_coda.
The commanders of the respective concentrations will certify the minor prior to graduation (see the contact information below). The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program. Certification should be completed no later than during the registration period for the student’s final semester at NC State.
