Military Leadership Minor

The Military Leadership Minor challenges cadets to study and practice adaptive leadership skills as they are presented with challenging scenarios related to garrison and tactical operations. The challenges increase throughout the minor courses to build cadet awareness and skills leading tactical operations up to a platoon level. They also conduct various styles of briefings to small and large audiences. The focus is on exploring, evaluating, and developing skills in decision-making, persuading, and motivating team members in Contemporary Operating Environments (COE). The upper-level courses develop individual proficiency in planning, executing, and assessing complex operations; functioning as a member of a staff and providing performance feedback to subordinates. Cadets assess risk, determine ethical decision making, evaluate and instruct cadets at lower levels. Furthermore, cadets will examine differences in customs and courtesies, military law, principles of war, and rules of engagement in the face of international terrorism. The minor is designed to prepare cadets for their first assignment with case studies, scenarios, and exercises emphasized on practical demands of leading as commissioned officers in the United States Army.
