Department of Military Science and Leadership

Welcome to Fresno State Bulldog Battalion!

Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a unique elective on campus that combines classroom instruction with hands on experience to develop leaders of character, who are adaptive, creative, and critical thinkers that possess the intellectual capacity and presence to lead in any environment. Best of all, upon graduation, those who complete ROTC curriculum and earn their bachelor’s degree will commission straight out of college as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, Army National Guard, or Army Reserves. All of these valuable leadership and management skills will extend well beyond your college years into any profession that you choose.  

Additionally, because it's an elective, you can try it out for up to two years with no commitment.
