Military Science courses conform to the subject requirements of the Senior Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Department of the Army. The objectives of the ROTC program are to attract, motivate, and prepare selected students with high potential to serve as commissioned officers in the active Army, or the U.S. Army Reserve, and the Army National Guard.
"All members of the Corps of Cadets are required to take a military science course which includes a physical fitness lab and a leadership lab each semester." Additional information concerning the Corps of Cadets at the University of North Georgia (UNG) is provided in the University Catalog.
The Department of Modern Language and the Department of Military Science offer students in the Corps of Cadets who are attached to a reserve component unit the unique opportunity to combine course work at the university with study done at the Defense Language Institute (DLI) in Monterey, California, in order to fulfill the Bachelor's degree requirements while training as military linguists.* Such students will receive their AA degree upon completion of language course work at the DLI. On returning to UNG, students will maintain and enhance the skills learned in the language studied at the DLI via distance learning and will complete a major of their choice for the Bachelor's degree, including any remaining core curriculum requirements needed.
