Catalog 2021-2022

MSL 401 The Army Officer

Develops cadet proficiency in planning, executing and assessing complex operations, functioning as a member of a staff, and providing performance feedback to subordinates. Cadets assess risk, make ethical decisions, and lead fellow Army ROTC cadets. Both their classroom and battalion leadership experiences are designed to prepare MSL 401 cadets for commissioned service as an officer. They identify responsibilities of key staff, coordinate staff roles, and use situational opportunities to teach, train and develop subordinates. Cadets also participate in a physical training program. Cadets must either meet the prerequisites (MSL 100/200/300-level courses) or substitute past military experience with the approval of the Professor of Military Science. All cadets must take the Advanced Leadership Laboratory course to fulfill Army commissioning requirements.
