The Department of Aerospace Studies focuses on military aerospace, providing students with the opportunity to study one of our country's major instruments of national power—the United States military.
The minor in aerospace studies emphasizes leadership as it is practiced in civilian and military institutions. Develop an understanding of international conflict; the formation of national security policy; the use of aircraft, spacecraft, and information to create political and military effects; and the development and organization of the United States military forces.
Enrollment in the ROTC program is not a prerequisite for this minor. A minor allows a student to specialize in a discipline outside their major. To pursue a minor, you must first be enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program and file a Curriculum Add/Drop Form with the Registrar's Office to declare the minor. We recommend that you begin your minor studies as early as possible in your academic career.
