Classroom Training

Cadets have regular classroom instruction throughout their career at UAA. In military science classes cadets learn about the modern Army. Each year as students progress through the Army ROTC program, they will learn about more complex aspects of the Army. As freshmen, cadets will learn Army fundamentals, from rank structure to marching technique. As students progress through the Army ROTC program and become seniors, they will study more complex intricacies of the Army ranging from tactics and current overseas operations to stateside training and doctrine theory.

The Army ROTC class is very similar to other college classes in that it has homework, quizzes, exams, and projects. Some core skills that help cadets succeed are dedication, proactive planning, and resilience. Cadets must simply apply themselves in order to be successful.
