MONTICELLO, AR — The University of Arkansas at Monticello will continue offering its students a minor in military science and a minor in leadership with the option of participating in ROTC, according to Interim Chancellor Jay Jones. This announcement follows a communication to the public last fall that the program was consolidating with the ROTC program at the UAPB campus and that the program would close at the end of the spring 2015 semester.

tv_buzzworthy 10dbArmy ROTC courses have been offered at UAM through a written agreement with UAPB since 2005. According to the agreement, students may enroll at UAM and earn a minor in military science, a four-year program of study. A student may also select the leadership minor, a 19-hour academic minor that includes two years of coursework from the military science curriculum as well as courses from other academic programs of study.

“We believe it is important to maintain an ROTC presence on campus,” said Jones. “The ROTC leadership has indicated to us that our campus has produced quality officers and that it is eager to continue to offer the program at Monticello. We want to make sure that the people of southeast Arkansas are aware of the program and its continued availability. We are very excited to announce that the core ROTC courses are scheduled on the Monticello campus again in the fall.”

Students minoring in military science may qualify for two-, three-, and four-year scholarship options, including an Arkansas National Guard Scholarship. Arkansas National Guard members may qualify for other scholarships and financial assistance to attend UAM.
