Military Science

A cross-enrollment agreement between Illinois State University (ISU) and Bradley University makes training in the Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (AROTC) available to qualified Bradley students who desire to earn appointment as commissioned officers in the United States Army. The goal of the AROTC is to commission college graduates into the Active, National Guard, and Reserve components of the Army. Military science classes are conducted on Illinois State’s campus in Normal, Illinois and at Bradley University. Military science classes are recorded on students’ transcripts, and the grades received and semester hours of credit are counted as if they had been taken at Bradley. For more information, please contact the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at (309) 677-2384.


To complete the basic course a student must complete MS 101, 102, 201, and 202, normally taken in that sequence, over a four-semester period. Exceptions are determined by law and may be discussed on an individual basis with the professor of Military Science at ISU. Entry into the advanced course requires successful completion of the basic course, basic camp or advanced placement, and acceptance by the professor of Military Science. The advanced course must be completed over a four-semester period, the usual sequence consisting of MS 301, 302, 401, and 402.

This is the official catalog for the 2020-2021 academic year. This catalog serves as a contract between a student and Bradley University. Should changes in a program of study become necessary prior to the next academic year every effort will be made to keep students advised of any such changes via the Dean of the College or Chair of the Department concerned, the Registrar's Office, u.Achieve degree audit system, and the Schedule of Classes. It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of the current program and graduation requirements for particular degree programs.
