Defense Studies and Leadership

The Minor in Defense Studies and Leadership, which is administered by the Department of History, provides students with a broad perspective on the military with analysis of all service branches of the Armed Forces from a historical and social scientific perspective. It also prepares current cadets for active duty service.

Students who plan to complete the requirements for the minor should consult the undergraduate advisor in the Department of History.
