Military Science Leadership Courses

Students in the ROTC program typically take one military science leadership (MSL) course per semester during their four-year college career.

100- and 200-level MSL courses are available to any UW Stout students regardless of major and can be taken without enrolling as a cadet. Students must fulfill prerequisites prior to enrolling in 300- and 400-level MSL courses.

Leadership Labs

In addition to ROTC's MSL courses, cadets participate in Leadership Labs that take place every Thursday during the semester. Leadership labs are an opportunity for cadets to apply classroom lessons to practical hands on training which usually takes place in an outdoor environment. It is a time where senior level cadets teach junior cadets and form mentorship bonds. Lab topics normally focus on Army tactical training, but also include subjects such as military customs and courtesies, land navigation, basic tactics, first aid, and communications. Whatever the day's lesson, it is sure to challenge and enrich the individual cadet and better prepare him or her for their future.
