Air Force - ROTC

Aerospace Studies, Minor

Students in this minor focus on the foundations of military/aerospace teamwork, leadership, management, ethics/philosophy, and national security. Opportunity is given to gain language proficiency or to pursue coursework relevant to the interplay of societal forces, via social science electives.


What Can I Do with a Minor in Aerospace Studies?

If you're interested in taking classes that expose you to Air Force history, how the Air Force contributes to national security, leadership and management skills, what it means to be a military officer, and communications skills and techniques, the Aerospace Studies minor could be a great addition to your major.

You will take courses emphasizing the individual as a manager and a leader, individual motivational and behavioral processes, leadership styles, group dynamics, and ethics.  You will also learn effective writing and speaking skills and take courses from other disciplines, including foreign languages, political science, criminal justice, and more. In addition, you will benefit from a number of interesting and knowledgeable guest speakers from both the Air Force and civilian community.

Note: A minor in Aerospace Studies does not obligate you to join the Air Force.
