In addition to courses taken at Ohio Dominican, ROTC students take their Military Science courses at Capital University. Some of these courses can be applied to a degree
Classes at Capital University
ROTC students learn through a combination of classroom instruction and experiential training and education. In the classroom, students learn of the history, traditions and values necessary to be a successful leader in the United States Army and in other professions.
Basic soldier skills such as first aid, survival and land navigation are also taught. Students practice their leadership skills during a weekly leadership lab.
Capital University Army ROTC and the University Nursing Program are recognized as Partners in Nursing Education. Army ROTC nursing students combine college electives in military science and invaluable nurse summer training experiences with their standard nursing program requirements. This helps develop professional skill sets required to serve an active duty nurse or a Reserve Officer working in a civilian hospital upon graduation.
Army ROTC Scholarships
Students may apply for Army ROTC scholarships. The United States Army typically funds a variety of two-, three- and four-year scholarships for highly qualified applicants. Contact the department for scholarship applications, a summary of the qualifications and the application deadlines.
