The Department of Aerospace Studies offers four-year and three-year programs through the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC). These provide matriculated men and women an opportunity to earn a commission as officers in the United States Air Force in conjunction with completing baccalaureate degree requirements in academic fields of the student's choice.
AFROTC is a military training program that offers academic preparation in interdisciplinary areas including communication skills, Air Force history, leadership and management principles and practices, decision-making theory and policy formulation, ethics and values, socialization process within the armed services, national and international relations, national defense structure, national security policy, and military law. In addition to their traditional college courses, AFROTC cadets are required to be enrolled in two Aerospace Study (AS) courses every semester.
Entry into the academic Aerospace Study (AS) courses during the first two years of AFROTC is open to all students and does not require a military obligation (unless on an AFROTC scholarship). Entry into the Leadership Laboratory AS courses during the final two years is selective and is normally initiated during the student's sophomore year. Students may qualify to be commissioned in any of more than 60 technical and nontechnical officer career areas or as flight officers (pilots or navigators). For complete information concerning the Air Force ROTC Program, prospective students should contact: Department of Aerospace Studies, University of Utah at 801.581.6236.
