The Department of Military Science and Leadership conducts leadership training and runs the Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program at Lander University.

ROTC is one of four ways to receive an Appointment as a United States Army Second Lieutenant.

The Military Science and Leadership curriculum is divided into two distinct courses: the Basic Course and the Advanced Course. All students are welcome to take the Basic Course. No strings attached!

We are part of a partnership among Presbyterian College, Newberry College, and Lander University. The three schools combine to form the Scottish Highlander Battalion. Learn more about our Battalion.

ROTC and the Department of Military Science and Leadership is located at 106 Main Street, Greenwood, SC 29646. Drop in; we would be happy to meet you and talk with you!
